A great book in the tradition of Graham Greene or LeCarre. Will hold your interest throughout!
This sequel to "The Tourist" is another outstanding contemporary spy novel from Steinhauer.
Builds on the cadence and character development from the excellent initial book in the series (The Tourist). See my comments on An American Spy for my take on the series. There are great moments that take this above the "thriller" level to a more interesting and nuanced level (thinking here of his captivity with the Germans and his reaction to their change of pace). Definitely consider this a more thoughtful addition to the genre--and a very believable, nuanced hero.
I am not a LeCarre fan but I dd like the book immensly. A wonderful spy novel makes me want to read more.
The reviewers are right: If you like early John Le Carre (the Smiley books), you'll enjoy The Nearest Exit and its predecessor, The Tourist (make sure you read them in order). Together with to Henry Porter and Peter Steiner's spy novels, these are the best I have read in years.
