  • Top notch spy story

    This is a spy story that leaves you wanting to know the next chapter in Milo's life. Don't want to spoil the ending, but I'd like to know what happens as Milo steps into a new role. Great read. Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed.

  • Everybody's a spy!

    Bit complicated at times and I'm still not sure about what happened to everybody in the end but still makes a good read for those of us who love spy stories.

  • American spy

    Persevere through part one and it will all be worth it. As intriguing as any spy novel that I have read, and I have read a lot. Complicated, clever, mind exercising are but a few comments I would attribute to this novel. A must read for the espionage cognoscenti.

  • great writing, maybe need to read the first two fi

    I had read a lot of good things about Olen Steinhauer’s books, so I was happy to get a chance to review an ARC of The American Spy, which is the third in Steinhauer’s Milo Weaver/Department of Tourism series, in exchange for my honest review. And, I liked a lot of things about The American Spy. The writing is crisp and drew me into the story. I could recognize places, and the characters were believable. There was some moral ambiguity to make me think. Overall, I enjoyed reading the book. However, I spent a lot of the book pretty confused. Granted, spy thrillers often mean to leave the reader confused until things come clear at the end. But I think I was more confused than I needed to have been because I hadn’t read either of the first two books in the series. So I didn’t have a good grasp of some background that might have been helpful, I think. Even the end was a bit unclear to me, and so I’m kind of wondering if I just didn’t get it, or if more background would have helped me get it, or if it was deliberately that way. All-in-all, though, I’m still giving this a four-star rating, which is quite good for me, based on the strength of the writing, and the fact that the book really pulled me along. But, I really wish I’d read the first couple of books in the series first, and, in fact, I’ll probably keep an eye out for them to go on sale sometime, and give them a try. Thanks again to the publisher and NetGalley for the review copy.

    Thanks for your feedback!
