Descrizione dell’editore

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 the global age of the CIA, wherever there's trouble, there's a Tourist: the men and women who do the dirty work. They're the Company's best agents – and Milo Weaver was the best of them all.

Following a near-lethal encounter with foreign hitman the 'Tiger', a burnt-out Milo decides to continue his work from behind a desk. Four years later, he's no closer to finding the Tiger than he was before. When the elusive assassin unexpectedly gives himself up to Milo, it's because he wants something in return: revenge.

Once a Tourist, always a Tourist – soon Milo is back in the field, tracking down the Tiger's handler in a world of betrayal, skewed politics and extreme violence. It's a world he knows well but he's about to learn the toughest lesson of all: trust no one.

Reviews

‘Well-plotted series… currents of rebellion and pro-democracy fervor sizzle in the air and this story catches all the danger and excitement of the historic moment’ New York Times

'His people are real, the crimes genuine, and he is telling larger truths about that era, making it unusually accessible' LA Times

'If you haven't yet discovered this gem of a series, I can't recommend them enough' The National Review

Praise for 'The Vienna Assignment':
