Quiller, a seasoned operative (this is his 17th adventure) takes over an operation from a murdered agent. The operation, its ends being unclear but clearly lethal, takes him on board the Moscow to Vladivostok express train, together with a missing agent, a group of former Soviet hardline generals and their thugs, and at least one possible rogue element. Quiller notes that agents (shadow executives, as his service calls them) hate trains because of their claustrophobic environments. The trip is f ...more

"Published in 1993, this is the 17th in the Quiller series. Now set in the post Cold war era, there are still missions for Quiller to undertake.

Quiller is a British secret agent extraordinaire - a man of action but not much character. Like any good agent, Quiller has moved with the times. Written in the first person, he is highly skille ...more

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 wi

A light, but intensely-paced spy thriller very much in the formula of the other Quiller sagas. Once you have a winning recipe, I guess.... Set in post cold war Siberia, Quiller succeeds in saving the world again.

It sometimes amazes me that there are plot twists that I find surprising. Surprising is not strong enough a word. I'm going to have to go with mindblowing.
