Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Pittu

Mystery & Suspense • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Pay attention. Watch the details. Listen closely. Important advice for listeners embarking on Steinhauer's newest spy story featuring Milo Weaver, (former) member of the CIA's uber-secret Department of Tourism. David Pittu's careful, taut narration makes it possible for listeners to follow every move of the array of agents and spymasters—Chinese, American, even some Germans. His accents are carefully modulated and punctuate passages with authentic precision. Pittu presents a good deal of backstory about Milo and the Tourists, and his steady unfolding keeps listeners informed and alert. Steinhauer’s earlier work, THE NEAREST EXIT, also narrated by Pittu, was the 2011 Hammett Prize winner. Listeners new to the series will be hooked and will want to explore more of this excellent espionage series in the vein of John le Carré and Len Deighton. R.F.W.
