About the Author: Olen Steinhauer

Olen Steinhauer grew up in Virginia, and has since lived in Georgia, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Texas, California, Massachusetts, and New York. Outside the US, he's lived in Croatia (when it was called Yugoslavia), the Czech Republic and Italy. He also spent a year in Romania on a Fulbright grant, an experience that helped inspire his first five books. He now lives in Hungary with his wife and daughter.

He has published stories and poetry in various literary journals over the years. His first novel, The Bridge of Sighs (2003), the start of a five-book sequence chronicling Cold War Eastern Europe, one book per decade, was nominated for five awards.

The second book of the series, The Confession, garnered significant critical acclaim, and 36 Yalta Boulevard (The Vienna Assignment in the UK), made three year-end best-of lists. Liberation Movements (The Istanbul Variations in the UK), was listed for four best-of lists and was nominated for an Edgar Award for best novel of the year. The final novel in the series, Victory Square, published in 2007, was a New York Times editor's choice.

With The Tourist, he has left the Cold War behind, beginning a trilogy of spy tales focused on international deception in the post 9/11 world. Happily, George Clooney's Smoke House Films has picked up the rights, with Mr. Clooney scheduled to star.

En 2001, poco después de recuperarse de heridas de bala en Venecia, Milo Weaver decidió que, mientras otros se dedican a localizar al Musulmán Más Famoso del Mundo en algún lugar de Afganistán, él dedicaría su tiempo a los brazos más quirúrgicos del terrorismo. Cuando alguien como Bin Laden o al-Zarqawi necesita eliminar a una persona concreta, acuden a un profesional. En el mundo del asesinato por encargo, hay pocos mejores que el Tigre. Y pocos tan buscados. Milo asumió entonces que abandonaría Turismo, un mundo oscuro lleno de asesinos manejados por el Gobierno de EE UU. Pero Milo ignoraba entonces lo que estaba a punto de sucederle. Comprenderá a El Tigre por fin y, peor aún, la angustia de verse perseguido por las cuentas pendientes del pasado. Un pasado que reaparece relacionándole con una conspiración en Sudán, un asesino suicida y un viejo amigo acusado de vender secretos a China. La CIA y Homeland Segurity ya saben que Milo debe ser eliminado. Él tan sólo encuentra una solución: regresar al submundo de Turismo. Pero no olvida una verdad fundamental: no confiar en nadie.
