Under the name "Adam Hall," he also wrote The Volcanoes of San Domingo about a mysterious plane crash off the coast of San Domingo and the efforts to uncover what really happened

Under the name "Adam Hall," he also wrote The Volcanoes of San Domingo about a mysterious plane crash off the coast of San Domingo and the efforts to uncover what really happened. When alerted by a report indicating that one of the crew members had been seen alive, "Rayner," an employee of the airline, is sent to investigate. He also wrote children's books about the character "Wumpus", a koala, and his friends, including Flip Flap, the penguin. Titles included Wumpus (published 1945, by Gerald G. Swan), and More about Wumpus (published 1947).

Adam Hall was the best espionage writer around from the viewpoint of an individual agent. Le Carre second, Len Deighton 3rd and all the rest beyond that. I read every one of Adam Halls Quiller books at least a half dozen times, each

Adam Hall was the best espionage writer around from the viewpoint of an individual agent. I read every one of Adam Halls Quiller books at least a half dozen times, each. Smiley is my favourite character as a spymaster but Quiller is my favourite deep cover agent. Though I have to say that Michal Caine brought Harry Palmer to life better than Segal brought Quiller to life.

Quiller Solitaire book

Quiller Solitaire book. Adam Hall knows the rules of writing but, when necessary, breaks some of them with verve. In one action paragraph that runs to nineteen lines, he uses only a single sentence – strung together by one ‘and’ after another, but the speed and action make the repetition of ‘and’ shadowy, hardly visible, as your eyes and mind race through the superb action scene. If you have read a Quiller novel, then you probably don’t need me to recommend this book – which I do, by the way, unreservedly.

Quiller alone must stop the plane and its suicidal terrorist crew from reaching their unknown destination. Never have Quiller's survival skills been so crucial as in the eerily prophetic mission code-named "Solitaire

Quiller alone must stop the plane and its suicidal terrorist crew from reaching their unknown destination. Never have Quiller's survival skills been so crucial as in the eerily prophetic mission code-named "Solitaire. When the body of the agent he was supposed to protect is discovered in the burnt wreck of a car, Quiller must unveil the truth behind rumors of a bomb threat somewhere in Europe. Posing as an international arms dealer, he infiltrates Nemesis, a group of deeply religious Euro-terrorist fanatics who follow a psychopathic and extremely intelligent leader.

Quiller, one of the last and best of espionage fiction’s secret agents to have prowled the Cold War back alleys over the past quarter century, will thrill fans again with this, his 16th adventure. When a fellow agent who has called upon him for protection is murdered before his eyes, an enraged and embarrassed Quiller pressures his superiors into giving him the dead man’s assignment to investigate the murder of a British cultural attache in Berlin.

Quiller SeriesAdam Hall. The Berlin Memorandum. This was the first "Quiller" novel I have read and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a "thinking persons" book. It read a chapter at a time only to be put down to absorb the logic and planning of Quiller. if the CIA didn't read this book, perhaps some others did. This is a good read and I hope you enjoy it as I did. 0.

Adam Hall was the best espionage writer around from the viewpoint of an individual agent. Le Carre second, Len Deighton 3rd and all the rest beyond that. I read every one of Adam Halls Quiller books at least a half dozen times, each. Smiley is my favourite character as a spymaster but Quiller is my favourite deep cover agent. Though I have to say that Michal Caine brought Harry Palmer to life better than Segal brought Quiller to life. I have always been disappointed in the wreck that the one and only Quiller movie was. Nothing like the book and Segal just did not capture Quiller the way Guinness and Caine captured Smiley and Harry Palmer.
So, in conclusion, if you want to read espionage from the viewpoint of a reasonably real personality, read Adam Hall's book about the exploits of Quiller.

Quiller #16 is first rate. I am convinced the writing gets better as the series progresses. This is another plot derived from a real-life event - in this case, the the Lockerbie disaster and it provides a gloomy foresight of a subsequent tragedy. The plot develops from a small scale into something very large, but this expansion keeps things credible, compared with the potentially world-changing missions of the previous two Quillers. Quiller depends more than usual on support in this novel and has more than his usual contention with his superiors. One of the best!

Of them all, Quiller is the most surgical of spies - he dissects his environment and purpose with a clean edge and considers options with the detachment of a stochastic computer. One might think him an android if he weren't so intensely human. We know next to nothing of Quiller's past save glimpses in the impressionist style, as a boy, looking over the banister at school at another boy who had 'taken his only way out', to willing 500 roses for Moira should he never return - 'should it be 500? What would she do with the bloody things?' he often asks in moments of self-doubt. The original series which I read and re-read from my teens into my thirties are untouchable: Kobra Manifesto, Striker Portfolio, Ninth Directive, Mandarin Cypher, Scorpion Signal, Tango Briefing, Peking Target, Sinkiang Executive and Warsaw Document, are the first nine: he intended to write nine originals to express the brink-existence of the 'ferret in the dark', the shadow executive in the modern world. There are many other books, of which 'Solitaire' is one, and these take single titles such as 'Barracuda', etc. I have to say, after the original nine, these are very good, but not as fulfilling - but I sound rather like the bore who has read a book and then seen the film: 'oh it's never as good is it' in a waft of supercilious nonsense. They are good, but do read the first group, for these are extraordinary. There is no one, no one, who writes the spy-action genre like Adam Hall - his knowledge of the psyche is encyclopaedic; he redefined the car chase sequence; individual combat is sudden, chaotic, imperfect, and you will see a Faulkneresque form of writing to convey speed and the blurring of events which happens to us all in the worst circumstances where consciousness fails to absorb the data crashing into its senses. He presupposes a level of experience and understanding by the reader which inevitably flatters rather than intimidates, and wastes no words on the unnecessary. He is in no way the infallible hero, but instead a survivor. That he was a pilot and a black belt in Karate, one of the dans, tells much of his personal experience and one will always wonder if he was in fact Quiller himself, a long long time ago. If this turned out to be the case, I would not be surprised.

Have it in paperback, wanted it on my kindle. Hall's prose and voice in the Quiller books is distinctive and terse, but makes violence nearly poetic. For me, Quiller is the iconic Cold War operative.

A thinking man's hero. I somehow must have missed this book years ago when I first read the Quiller books. A great read like all of them. Adam Hall brings you to the edge of your seat or keeps you awake at night. If you like espionage thrillers, you'll love Quiller.
Now to start the next one.

Quiller series books are for anyone who likes a good spy novel. Only reason this isn't 5 stars is the ending left you with a few questions.
Stanober
Intense and thoughful. A literary thriller. A satisfying read. Amazing insight and technical accuracy. Writes conversation, suspense, and action all brilliantly.
This was the first "Quiller" novel I have read and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a "thinking persons" book. It read a chapter at a time only to be put down to absorb the logic and planning of Quiller. I won't give anything away, but reading Robert Littel's endorsement was chilling...if the CIA didn't read this book, perhaps some others did. This is a good read and I hope you enjoy it as I did.
