Descrizione dell’editore

Quiller is called back from his vacation in France by the secretive London Bureau. He is asked to take on a mission that seems strangely undefined. Quiller learns that there is an international terrorist strike being planned -- at least 3 agents with the Bureau have died trying to gain information on this terrorist strike. All that is certain is that this group will not hesitate to kill anyone who seems even remotely on their trail. Quiller's task is to infiltrate this group through a series of disguises.

When the daughter of a the U.S. Department of Defense chief is taken hostage in the steamy jungles of Brazil, Quiller again puts his life on the line in a battle of nerves with the terrorists, ultimately in a plane with a bomb next to him set to go off in 3 minutes.

Another novel that reveals the author's ability to maintain edge-of-the-seat tension and describe distant locations in colorful, visceral ways.

Quiller remains one of the most fascinating, complex and enigmatic characters in literature, and each Quiller novel gives the reader more insight into this brilliant, conflicted, and solitary man.
