Praise for "The Nearest Exit
""The "Nearest Exit" should take its place among the best of the spy thrillers."
"""The Nearest Exit", a terrific second installment in Olen Steinhauer's 'Tourist' spy series about Milo Weaver . . . [His] company is at least as valuable to the series' appeal as is his flair for international trickery."
--Janet Maslin, "The New York Times"
"[Steinhauer's] descriptions of European cities and their residents are full of life. But Weaver is the novel's gem. . . . In many ways, this is a classic spy novel, but it's Weaver's angst that lifts the book to a compelling level of freshness."
"Steinhauer delivers another winner in "The Nearest Exit", a spy novel that asks deeper questions about the price we extract from individuals in the pursuit of the so-called greater good."
--"Los Angeles Times"
""The Nearest Exit", Steinhauer's follow-up novel, reprises the themes of "The Tourist" with even more success. . . . Like le Carre's George Smiley, Weaver is a richly imagined creation with a scarred psyche and a complex backstory that elevates him above the status of run-of-the-mill world-weary spook."
--"The New York Times Book Review"
