Olen Steinhauer’s Next Thriller Set for Early 2020 Release (with Details)

Eight years after releasing An American Spy (2012), New York Times bestselling author Olen Steinhauer is set to bring back former CIA agent Milo Weaver in The Last Tourist, which is scheduled to hit U.S. bookstores on February 11, 2020.

Weaver, then with CIA, previously uncovered a conspiracy linking the Chinese government to the highest reaches of the American intelligence community—including his own clandestine department, secretly referred to as “Tourism.” Now, in The Last Tourist, past sins come back to haunt Milo in the present day when a new government assassin, codenamed “Tourists,” shows up to kill him and a young analyst, forcing him to once again go searching for answers. See the cover art and plot details below.

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.
