The Tourist Paperback
Superb new CIA thriller featuring black ops expert Milo Weaver and acclaimed by Lee Child as 'first class - the kind of thing John le Carre might have written'.
In today's CIA, there are hotspots everywhere. And wherever there's trouble, there's a Tourist: the men and women who do the CIA's dirty work.
They're the Company's best - and until he burnt out, Milo Weaver was the best of them all.
Milo has spent the last four years behind a desk, tracking the elusive killer known as 'The Tiger'.
When the Tiger unexpectedly gives himself up, it's because he wants something in return: revenge.
Once a Tourist, always a Tourist and soon Milo is back in the field, a world of betrayal, skewed politics and extreme violence.
It's a world he knows well - but he's still about to learn the toughest lesson of all.

Review by johnbsheridan
A little disappointing as it started so well but unraveled towards the end. Initially would have compared positively to "The Cleaner" by Brett Battles which treads similar ground but was undone by its MacGyver-ish tendencies. The central character is convincing in all the different aspects he is called upon to play and the book functions best with him at the centre of the action. Things deteriorate when he is sidelined and storyline concentrates on other characters explaining or unveiling occurrences. This ultimately leads to an unsatisfactory conclusion.
