The Tourist

The Tourist
By Olen Steinhauer
Minotaur Books, 2009. 408 pgs.

Milo Weaver has a desk job with the CIA. Milo interrogates a man being held believed to be an assassin--"the Tiger." Soon "the Tiger" is dead in his cell. When Angela Yates, a colleague from Milo's days in black ops, is under suspicion of trading secrets, Milo pays her a visit. Soon Angela is dead in her apartment. Milo returns home to vacation with his family in Disneyland when his superior call him with a "go" code and Milo sets off on the run. Milo has to figure out what's going on while Homeland security and and the CIA itself are trying to bring him in.

This is a fine espionage thriller. Fast paced and a quick read. If the description above sounds nothing like the movie you might have seen, that's because this book is nothing like the movie you might have seen.
