Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Like his counterparts James Bond and Matt Helm, Quiller is a secret agent survivor of the '60s. Since his debut a quarter century ago in the Edgar-winning The Quiller Memorandum , Hall's agent-with-no-first-name has carried out his assignments for ``the Bureau,'' a top-secret British counter-intelligence agency, with an efficiency and emotional detachment that is at once chilling and fascinating. Aside from the requisite involvement with beautiful women on every assignment, Quiller shows few of his peers' idiosyncrasies; the job's the thing to Quiller, and the job this time takes him to Miami, where the Bureau's station agent has begun behaving strangely. No sooner does Quiller arrive than the man disappears, and the shadowy outlines of a vast and frightening mind-control conspiracy begin to surface. This taut, sophisticated thriller involves Quiller in the American presidential campaign, a large-scale cocaine smuggling operation and a network of Mafia killers, who threaten his life and (worse yet from his viewpoint) create a strong possibility that he will be pulled off the job before it is finished. A sure-fire pleaser for espionage fans. (May)
The Boston Globe
"Hall has created a new form: the spy thriller that is all action and yet cerebral, a writing feat few can match."
Kirkus Reviews
"Quiller is by now a primary reflex."
London Times Literary Supplement
"Tension in a novel is difficult to maintain at a pitch that actually creates a physical impact on the reader. A few of the best writers can do it, and among them is Adam Hall."
The New York Times
(Quiller is) "the greatest survival expert among contemporary secret agents."

Elleston Trevor’s novels, plays, and short stories range from light, witty mysteries to dramas, usually about ordinary individuals experiencing extraordinary situations. To cover a wide diversity of subject matter Elleston wrote under various pseudonyms: Adam Hall, Trevor Burgess, Roger Fitzalan, Simon Rattray, Mansell Black, Caesar Smith, Howard North, Warwick Scott, and even a woman’s name, Leslie Stone. Elleston is best known for his classic, The Flight of the Phoenix, and for his nineteen novels about a spy named Quiller. In 1966, The Quiller Memorandum won the Edgar award for the best mystery of the year. The Flight of the Phoenix and Quiller Memorandum both became major motion pictures.
