Book DescriptionFrom the author of New York Times bestseller The Tourist..., , Six years ago in Vienna, terrorists took over a hundred hostages, and the rescue attempt went terribly wrong. The CIA's Vienna station gathered intel during those tense hours, assimilating facts from the ground and from an agent on the inside. So when it all went wrong, the question had to be asked: Had their agent been compromised, and how?, , Two of the CIA's case officers in Vienna, Henry Pelham and Celia Harrison, were lovers at the time, and on the night of the hostage crisis Celia decided she'd had enough. She left the agency, married and had children, and now lives in idyllic Carmel-by-the-Sea. Henry is still a case officer in Vienna, and has traveled to California to see her one more time, to relive the past, maybe, or to put it behind him once and for all., But neither of them can forget that long-ago question: Had their agent been compromised? If so, how? Each also wonders what role tonight's dinner companion might have played in the way the tragedy unfolded six years ago., , All the Old Knives is New York Times bestseller Olen Steinhauer's most intimate, most cerebral, and most shocking novel to date.
Editorial ReviewPraise for "The Cairo Affair ""Stunning...It has become de rigeur to compare Steinhauer to le Carre, 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" (starred) "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, "The New York Times "Praise for "The Tourist" series "Not since le Carre 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."--"The 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 Carre."--Stephen King, "Entertainment Weekly"
