Overview

Quiller: The Striker Portfolio by Adam Hall

London's secretive Bureau sends Quiller to investigate a suspicious rash of crashes of Strikers, West Germany's new supersonic jets. Quiller's hunt for the villains makes him a target for murder and ultimately a prisoner in East Germany's terrifying "asylum". All Quiller's brilliance, impulsiveness and courage are called on for him to survive and uncover the truth behind these murders. Moving with breakneck speed, THE STRIKER PORTFOLIO was called by the Buffalo Evening News "fast and savage" and "cinematically hypnotic" by The New Yorker.
