“Milo Weaver is an undercover spy for the CIA, and he doesn't know who to trust, even within his own organization. His job requires blind obedience, but a burgeoning sense of empathy has compromised his callousness, and when he is instructed to kill a young girl, he balks, grappling with his own moral identity. A terrific story of suspense and action, with powerful writing and unforgettable characters.”
-- Jennie Turner-Collins, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Cincinnati, OH


Description

Milo Weaver has nowhere to turn but back to the CIA in Olen Steinhauer's brilliant follow-up to the New York Times bestselling espionage novel The Tourist  The Tourist, Steinhauer's first contemporary novel after his awardwinning historical series, was a runaway hit, spending three weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and garnering rave reviews from critics.  Now faced with the end of his quiet, settled life, reluctant spy Milo Weaver has no choice but to turn back to his old job as a “tourist.” Before he can get back to the CIA's dirty work, he has to prove his loyalty to his new bosses, who know little of Milo's background and less about who is really pulling the strings in the government above the Department of Tourism-or in the outside world, which is beginning to believe the legend of its existence. Milo is suddenly in a dangerous position, between right and wrong, between powerful self-interested men, between patriots and traitors-especially as a man who has nothing left to lose.

Praise For The Nearest Exit

"Pittu’s intense narration reflects Weaver’s conflict between his training and his emerging insecurities about his work and family...Crisp and concentrated, Pittu unwinds the gripping action with energy. As Weaver searches for a traitor among the tourists, Pittu’s characterization of the brilliant, obese German espionage administrator adds impact." -- AudioFile Magazine
