Publisher Description

You are a secret agent working for the British in Berlin. You are due to go home on leave, but you are being followed by the enemy—or your own people. A man meets you in the theater and briefs you on a plot to revive the power of Nazi Germany. You do not believe him, but you remember that one of the suspects mentioned was a senior SS officer you met while you were working as a spy in Nazi Germany. Next you make contact with a beautiful girl who may know something. Someone tries to kill both of you.

Your name is Quiller. You are the hero of an extraordinary novel that shows how a spy works, how messages are coded and decoded, how contacts are made, how a man reacts under the influence of truth drugs, and that traces the story of a vastly complex, entertaining, convincing, and sinister plot.

    " 3.5 stars. It moves and I like the 60s world weary vibe. But it didn't rise much above that. The dated psychology lost me. "

    " Edgar Award winner for 1966 -- Quiller is the codename for a British operative who prefers to work completely alone while tracking down and bringing to court high-ranking Nazi fugitives. While this basic premise is nothing new as far as the fiction I've been lately seeking out, the period in which the book was written makes it a special case. Only 20 years since the end of WWII, and smack in the midst of the Cold War, author Adam Hall's introduction to Quiller comes across as very contemporary in its diction and idioms. And if you've ever wanted to know precisely what is running through the mind of a secret agent, this would be your book. "

    " Fast moving spy thriller set in the aftermath of WWII. It gives an excellent first person account of how an intelligence agent of the time logically derives a solution to issues. I enjoyed the book and I am putting more Quiller novels on my reading list for the future. "

    " This spy novel about neo-Nazis 1960's Berlin seemed dated and a little stilted to me. But good enough to hold my interest till the end. "

    " Great introduction to Quiller, the spy who doesn't use a gun. Compelling read with great twists and turns. This is a more grounded and realistic take on a spy thriller as compared to some of the other novels out there, but still has plenty of action. "

    - Yash, 8/25/2013
  • Overall Performance: 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    " A brisk and suspenseful tale of espionage and revenge in post-World War II Berlin. Almost as emotionally involving as John Le Carre's *The Spy Who Came In From The Cold*, with intrigue and action that's right up there with Frederick Forsyth's best stuff. "

    " Tough and serious; an espionage procedural pursued with relentless thoroughness to a logical conclusion. Humourless and dispassionate, a Cold War indeed. "

    " I read a few of these many years ago when they first came out. I recently found and purchased all 19 of the series in hardback and read them serially. The novels are esoteric thrillers, very cerebral and highly recommended. "
