Former master spy Milo Weaver is assigned to return to field work. He loathes the task as he is ordered to do something horrific for people who will throw him under the bus if there is a hint of scandal.

Apparently a mole is inside the agency. He or she must be purged before those in the cold are eliminated. Milo is to find the traitor and kill the traitor. The problem is no evidence surfaces inside the agency; only politicians taking credit and tossing blame. That is until he begins to unravel a double helix case of revenge, but by who remains unknown and the field threat imminent.

The return of The Tourist is a terrific complicated and purposely convoluted espionage thriller as even the identities of the agencies are murky. Weaver knows exactly the key traits of his superiors whom he detests and distrusts. These political desk jockey handler(s) make Lady Macbeth seem as if she lacks ambition as they will do anything including allowing field operatives to die to further their careers. Filled with a zillion suspects and multiple subplots, Weaver knows The Nearest Exit for a field agent is death.

If this novel were 300 pages long, I would have said that it was exciting and full of intrigue, even if a bit convoluted and at times confusing. It surely deserved 4 stars for entertainment value.
But, the book, inexplicably, went on for another 100 pages, where the author found more tedium as he felt the need to explain more than necessary. Perhaps he just liked his story so much that he couldn't quit. But, the last 100 pages wore me out, they didn't excite me, and I found myself looking for the nearest exit!

    Not as good as the first one

    This book definitely picks up where the first one left off, but it does a lot of recapping so that someone could read this as a stand alone instead of a 2nd book in a series. I found it to be very repetitive and moved a lot slower than the first one in the series. I still finished it, and I did enjoy it, and I would even read the next one. But I think the reiteration of so much plot was a waste of space and probably unnecessary.
