|Summary, etc.:||"New York Times bestselling author Olen Steinhauer brings back Milo Weaver in a new novel. In Olen Steinhauer's bestseller An American Spy, reluctant CIA agent Milo Weaver thought he had finally put "Tourists"-CIA-trained assassins-to bed. A decade later, Milo is hiding out in Western Sahara when a young CIA analyst arrives to question him about a series of suspicious deaths and terrorist chatter linked to him. Their conversation is soon interrupted by a new breed of Tourists intent on killing them both, forcing them to run. As he tells his story, Milo is joined by colleagues and enemies from his long history in the world of intelligence, and the young analyst wonders what to believe. He wonders, too, if he'll survive this interview. After three standalone novels, Olen Steinhauer returns to the series that made him a bestseller"--|

*Starred Review* Milo Weaver never liked being a Touristâthe code name for the members of an off-the-grid group of CIA-trained assassinsâand, finally, after the traumatic events described in The Nearest Exit (2010) and An American Spy (2012)âhe thought he'd finally pulled the plug, forming a noninterventionist intelligence-gathering service called the Library. The idea was to use his skills to ferret out what the bad guys were up to and make that information available to the governments affected, thus preventing international carnage rather than causing it. But now it appears the Tourists are back, in a more lethal form, and Milo is the presumed ringleader, wanted by his own former employees. After convincing a naive but deceptively shrewd CIA analyst that he, Milo, is being set up, Milo gathers his shrinking crew of allies and sets out to bring the new Tourists down, using the only weapon at his disposal, the Library's encrypted files. What follows is a byzantine tale of alliances formed and discarded, double crosses tripled and quadrupled, in which corporations are the new nation-states, with their own armies. Like John le CarrÃ©'s Agent Running in the Field (2019), Steinhauer pits a disenchanted agent, an ideologue no more, against the new evil empire, multinational corporations for whom money knows no borders. It's not a fair fight, but Milo is a hell of a counterpuncher, and we love rooting for him. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
