Reviews

Praise for "The Nearest Exit" "Milo's back, and he's better than ever...The Nearest Exit should take its place among the best of the spy thrillers." --Associated Press "The Nearest Exit, a terrific second installment in Olen Steinhauer's 'Tourist' spy series about Milo Weaver . . . [His] company is at least as valuable to the series' appeal as is his flair for international trickery." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times "[Steinhauer's] descriptions of European cities and their residents are full of life. But Weaver is the novel's gem. . . . In many ways, this is a classic spy novel, but it's Weaver's angst that lifts the book to a compelling level of freshness." --USA Today "Steinhauer delivers another winner in The Nearest Exit, a spy novel that asks deeper questions about the price we extract from individuals in the pursuit of the so-called greater good." --Los Angeles Times "The Nearest Exit, Steinhauer's follow-up novel, reprises the themes of The Tourist with even more success. . . . Like le Carre's George Smiley, Weaver is a richly imagined creation with a scarred psyche and a complex backstory that elevates him above the status of run-of-the-mill world-weary spook." --The New York Times Book Review "The author's brilliantly imagined characters...truly sustain this richly rewarding thriller." --The Houston Chronicle "Steinhauer's execution... is nearly impeccable, and if your taste goes this dark you will follow him wherever he goes." --The Dallas Morning News "Steinhauer's adept characterization of a morally conflicted spy makes this an emotionally powerful read." --Publishers Weekly "The Tourist was impressive, proving that Steinhauer had the ability to leap from the historical setting of his excellent Eastern European quintet to a vividly imagined contemporary landscape. But this is even better, a dazzling, dizzyingly complex world of clandestine warfare that is complicated further by the affairs of the heart." --Booklist (starred review) "Extraordinarily complex and compelling." --Library Journal Milo's back, and he's better than ever "The Nearest Exit" should take its place among the best of the spy thrillers.
