Overview


Anxious to return to the field, Quiller reluctantly agrees to undertake a rogue mission sponsored by a mysterious controller. The mission is more than difficult. Cambodia is again on the verge of a bloodbath, and Quiller, without London's knowledge or support, must somehow find a way to prevent another “killing fields”. In the process Quiller will be forced to confront not just the Khmer Rouge and his own controller, but the strength of his most deeply-held convictions.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this latest Quiller espionage thriller, the eponymous agent, bored in London, takes on a rogue assignment-one the Bureau has not sanctioned but which is the private effort of one of the ``controls,'' the enigmatic Flockhart. The mission: discover what Pol Pot is up to in his ongoing efforts to return the Khmer Rouge to power. Arriving in Phnom Penh, Quiller finds himself attracted to his first contact, a female French photographer who harbors an important secret, and suspicious of his field director. Following a narrow escape from a Khmer Rouge encampment, Quiller uncovers plans for yet another Cambodian bloodbath, to be directed by General Kheng, the man who has become Pol Pot's successor. As events come to a head, Quiller must either compromise his principles to change a nation's fate or allow millions of lives to be sacrificed. Aficionados of this series will no doubt find much to enjoy here, though a tendency toward repetition continues to mark Hall's style (the frequent use of the term ``killing fields'' becomes particularly irksome). (Sept.)
