Though I’m a fan of fiction and mysteries I don’t often pick up spy thrillers but my boyfriend enjoyed it so I figured I would give it a go, and I was not disappointed. (It didn’t hurt that the cover boasted a beaming recommendation from the one and only Stephen King.)
Milo Weaver is a Tourist, a member of black ops of “The Company,” ie, the CIA and he is as good at his job as he is unhappy. I don’t want to say much about his novel, lest I give anything away, but it is well-written, complex, and full of twists and turns. It took me a little while to get in to the rhythm of to to but once I did I stuck with it and couldn’t put it down. I’m pleased to now realize this is first of a series and I intend to read on. If like me you have enjoyed reading mystery novels but haven’t read any good ones in quite some time, give this a try.
