The Tourist

The Tourist The Tourist by Olen Steinhauer

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Bit of a departure for me here, I'm not much of a fiction reader, and when I am, it's usually an author I've read before. Glad I took a chance on this - The Tourist is a gripping, well-balanced spy novel with enough action, tradecraft, plot twists and intrigue to keep me interested without being overwhelming. Sounds like it might be made into a movie - it doesn't read like it was written expressly for the purpose, but could have an interesting adaptation.

Not overwhelming, so not like JB? :)
