Amazingly, each of Adam Hall's 19 Quiller books features a unique set of problems for the protagonist to solve, which he always does with imagination, intelligence, and determination. The crisp and believable writing never flags. The author endows Quiller with fluency in German, French, Polish, and Russian, plus a bit of Mandarin and Thai.

Quiller Book Seventeen. Chapter 1. BUCHAREST. That was out of the book, but not everything in this trade’s in the book, in fact very little that really matters, none of the deadly vibrations you pick up in a red sector, nothing of what we call mission feel, the unnamed sense that allows a single photon of light to hit the retina and alert the brain, the sound of.

Quiller Meridian book. There was no writer better at this than Adam Hall in his Quiller novels. His spy, codenamed Quiller, worked for a secret government organization that reported directly to the Prime Minister. Quiller’s refusal to carry a gun, he claimed it made you weak, and need to work There’s something about the first person narrative that can really make a spy novel come alive. I think it’s the fact that you are stuck inside the spy’s head with all the paranoia that being alone and undercover would require.

Quiller is a fictional character created by English novelist Elleston Trevor. Quiller, whose one-word name is a pseudonym, works as a spy, and he is the hero of a series of 19 Cold War thrillers written under the pseudonym Adam Hall, and became Trevor's most popular character. The books focus on a solitary, highly capable operative who works, usually on his own, for a British government organization, referred to as "The Bureau", which "doesn't exist".

Amazingly, each of Adam Hall's 19 Quiller books features a unique set of problems for the protagonist to solve, which he always does with imagination, intelligence, and determination. The crisp and believable writing never flags. The author endows Quiller with fluency in German, French, Polish, and Russian, plus a bit of Mandarin and Thai. It helps if the reader knows some of these languages too, but it isn't imperative to the story line, which frequently races from one page to the next. I've now read each Quiller book twice and have never regretted a moment of doing so.

An unknown classic, even if the hero does cheat a little, borrowing a hostile mechanized brigade for a bit.

More often than not the author's restrained use of descriptive imagery or metaphor resonates, even reaches the level of beauty of, for instance, Romantic poetry--this in addition to a plot with stakes bigger than most superheroes, let alone 007, ever play for, and certainly more persuasive as well.

More accustomed to snatch-and-run assignments, the hero here finds himself on a different mission, Meridian, one that does not actually have an objective. Instead, Quiller is sent to a dark rail yard to find one, if a dead man can tell a tale. But the trail looks like going cold in the middle of Siberia, until...

I would offer that if the final pages of this book were to have a musical score, one candidate might be another great, Deborah Cox's Nobody's Supposed to Be Here (the heart-pounding remix, that is) The outcome--impossible to believe and yet utterly earned at every step by the author and therefore plausible, and therefore, well, quite breathtaking--is absolutely astounding.

How Elleston Trevor (aka Adam Hall)would have laughed - so folks who bought this shamefully out of print classic also bought *JK Rowling*? Well, why not and God bless them and God bless the technology that can crunch the stats to come up with that one.
Hall's lone ferret of a spy is one of the great creations of fiction and I think this is the latest one to be essayed by Hollywood to fit on the screen. It'll be the usual fiasco, of course, because Hall's muscular poetry and Quiller's inner dialog simply won't translate and, anyway, it'll have to be dumbed so far down that it might as well be some hack ghoster providing the screenplay, which is probably what it will be.
Of course, you can't actually *buy* any Quillers these days because the publishers are incapable to keeping them in print, but that should end when the movie comes out and Travolta or whoever they get struts his stuff and tries to get the shotokan right. (I hope it is Travolta because Elleston piled such contempt on the Ron Hubbard lot in his lifetime that it'd be poetic justice for one of them to come an artistic cropper trying to take on Hall's elegant storyline and real flesh-n-blood hero.)
