I’ll finish it in a minute. By the time Angela arrived, her hair damp from an interrupted shower, the visitors had been inside the palazzo for twelve minutes. There were four tourists along the length of the street, and he hoped they would clear out soon. You have a gun? Charles asked as he took out his Walther.

I have a nitpicky complaint about this book, but it's one that ruined my trust in the author and caused me to enjoy the book less. The wife of the main character is supposed to be the director of Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library at Columbia University, a place I know very well from my grad student days, and Steinhauer's characterization of her is frankly redonkulous, knowing as I do what that directorship actually means. This character comes across as a meek person in her mid-thirties whose education about design mainly comes from the magazines she cataloged when working in a library at MIT, who is unworldly, untraveled, and uncultured. Having crossed paths with a few directors of major research libraries at Ivy League institutions, I can say that one would absolutely never become a director of a library such as Avery without being worldly, very well educated, well-traveled, a little bit aggressive, and well more advanced in one's career than once could possibly be at the age of, say, 35 to 40. It seemed an asinine mischaracterization that belittled several things simultaneously, including librarianship, Avery, Columbia University, and women.

As for the plot it was a book version of your typical American espionage movie. Enjoyable enough at the time but not making it on any "all-time best" lists.

I am a spy novel fan and have read many writers of the genre. I had never read a Steinhauer book but based upon the good reviews given this book in this forum, I ordered it. I really did not enjoy it. I did not get any sense of adventure from the attempt at foreign intrigue, foreign places etc. I felt Steinhauer spent more time in delving into the emotions of the characters, which is certainly important in good writing, but not at the expense of what this type of book is supposed to be about. In my opinion, not in the league of the works by Alan Furst and Phillip Kerr.

It's been a long time since I've read a spy novel that is complex and sophisticated, in the same league with LeCarre and Graham Greene. The Tourist is that book and Milo Weaver is that spy.

The concept focuses on a black ops group in what is presumably the CIA (or perhaps the NSA). The people who work here are referred to as "tourists" because they travel around the world posing as tourists, going in and out of various nations to conduct undercover operations that, we assume, have some rational objective, but what that is never becomes clear. Weaver has many names and has participated in many black operations. When we first meet him he is out of the business, or so he believes.

The conflict is that Weaver also has a family -- a wife and step-daughter, both of whom he adores. He leaves them to complete the proverbial 'one, last job,' which of course turns out to be a huge, complicated mess that spins out of control -- for Milo and everyone else involved. There are some interesting characters that Milo comes into contact with, and none of them are either completely "good" or "bad." Each one has some sort of dark side and they all seem to be competing against one another, even those who all work for the good ol' USA.

I don't want to give away any plot details, but I will say that nothing is as it seems and, in the end, different readers may not agree on exactly what took place. We are left with a good deal of ambiguity, which may be the reason some readers did not find this novel enjoyable. I am the opposite. I dislike books where everything ends up conveniently resolved, since life is obviously not that way and in the spy world, apparently, one can never be sure of one's own identity, let alone anyone else's.

I see that author Olen Steinhauer has written other books featuring Milo Weaver, so gather that this is a continuing series. i'm not sure if this is the first book in the series, but I do know that I will probably pick up a few others to see if Milo becomes one of my favorite spies. He's certainly not James Bond, but he may be able to hold up a good comparison to Smiley.

A decently paced thriller. The author has a very clever concept - Secret agent/hit men tourists run by office-based travel agents for a top secret department within a department at the CIA called the Department of Tourism. Former tourist turned travel agent Milo Weaver brought back into the field to investigate one of their own only to find himself the subject of scrutiny. I liked the plot twists, I wouldn't say they were predictable, there's just never really enough information relayed to figure it out yourself - so it kept me guessing anyway. However, the characters aren't particularly well developed and there's too much reliance on the "pull me all the video footage from the surrounding area" and not much grounded in reality. I read it in a couple of hours on my day off, enjoyed it, but with the understanding it doesn't really compare to John Le Carre type thrillers.
