Praise for The Cairo Affair

'Stunning . . . It has become de rigeur to compare Steinhauer to le Carré, but it's nearly time to pass the torch: for the next generation, it's Steinhauer who will become the standard by which others are measured' Booklist 

'Elaborate, sophisticated...A long, twisty road full of cleverly placed potholes and unexpected turns...Mr. Steinhauer draws his spies as flesh-and-blood characters' Janet Maslin, New York Times

Praise for The Tourist series:

'Not since le Carré has a writer so vividly evoked the multilayered, multifaceted, deeply paranoid world of espionage, in which identities and allegiances are malleable and ever shifting, the mirrors of loyalty and betrayal reflecting one another to infinity. In this intensely clever, sometimes baffling book, it's never quite clear who is manipulating whom, and which side is up' New York Times Book Review

Stunning . . . Readers are irresistibly drawn into Weaver's dogged struggle to unravel a complicated game of cat and mouse...Steinhauer is at the top of his game-but when isn't he?'USA Today

'Here's the best spy novel I've ever read that wasn't written by John le Carré' Stephen King,Entertainment Weekly 

'The kind of thing le Carré might have written if he knew then what we know now' Lee Child on The Tourist
