The Tourist by Olen Steinhauer

The Tourist revolves around Milo Weaver, if that's his real name, an assassin (referred to as a Tourist) for a clandestine branch of the CIA. On Sept. 11, 2001, he was injured in a shootout in Venice and retires as a Tourist. He married a woman he met that day and helped raise her daughter as his own. Milo is happy with his family life and his desk job for the next six years, until he's convinced to work as a Tourist to help clear the name of an old friend. This new assignment may actually find the old friend guilty and also help him find the killer of an old nemesis. It's a new world for the CIA post-9/11, and Milo finds the agency involved in a large number of international plots where friend and foe are hard to separate. He must find a way to save his own neck and return to the domestic life he left behind. Olen Steinhauer's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the New York Times saying, "As for Mr. Steinhauer, the two-time Edgar Award nominee who can be legitimately mentioned alongside John le Carre, he displays a high degree of what Mr. le Carre's characters like to call tradecraft. If he's as smart as “The Tourist” makes him sound, he'll bring back Milo Weaver for a curtain call."
