World-class spy fiction for a post - 9/11 age starring a black ops agent to rival Bauer or Bourne.

After the dissolution of the Department of Tourism, Milo's old boss, Alan Drummond, grows obsessed with revenge against the man who's destroyed his life: the Chinese spymaster Xin Zhu. When Alan disappears in London, having traveled around the planet, to reach the UK, clues are few and questions numerous.

In China, Xin Zhu tracks evidence of a conspiracy against him (and his young wife) as he tries to survive the intrigues of Beijing politics.

In Germany, Erika Schwartz comes across signs that Tourism may not be as dead as it seemed to be.

In the center of it all is Milo Weaver, trying to stay alive and protect his family in Brooklyn.

Things always become much, much worse before they can become better. That's one of Tourism's first rules.
