the Nearest Exit by Olen Steinhauer Book Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

About: Milo has turned his back completely on his role in The Tourists organization. Sadly, his reputation has been tarnished. He must work hard to prove his worth in his new position at the CIA. He muct also keep his partnership with his father a secret.


Plot: With series, some books fizzle out as the series go on. Some remain steady. Some actually get better as the series progresses. This is the kind that gets better. I didn’t find the first book boring, but it was nowhere near as intense and impressive as this one. It’s the kind of book that has you asking the best kind of questions through the entire book. Rest assured that all the answers are given. In time.


Characters: Milo seems to be more comfortable in his skin in this book. The wife and daughter seem to be coping as best as they can. Especially since the daughter knows virtually nothing of what seems to be going on.


Narration: This book was narrated by David Pittu. He did a pretty impressive job. His voice is very similar to the person who narrated the first book. It’s probably why they chose him, but I have no way of knowing that information. Either way, he winds up narrating the rest of the series. I’m curious on what else he has narrated.


Suggestions: None come to mind.


Recommend: Yes
