Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this latest Quiller espionage thriller, the eponymous agent, bored in London, takes on a rogue assignment-one the Bureau has not sanctioned but which is the private effort of one of the "controls," the enigmatic Flockhart. The mission: discover what Pol Pot is up to in his ongoing efforts to return the Khmer Rouge to power. Arriving in Phnom Penh, Quiller finds himself attracted to his first contact, a female French photographer who harbors an important secret, and suspicious of his field director. Following a narrow escape from a Khmer Rouge encampment, Quiller uncovers plans for yet another Cambodian bloodbath, to be directed by General Kheng, the man who has become Pol Pot's successor. As events come to a head, Quiller must either compromise his principles to change a nation's fate or allow millions of lives to be sacrificed. Aficionados of this series will no doubt find much to enjoy here, though a tendency toward repetition continues to mark Hall's style (the frequent use of the term "killing fields" becomes particularly irksome).

From Booklist

The eighteenth entry in the Quiller espionage series--the first of which garnered Hall an Edgar almost 30 years ago--is as entertaining as its predecessors. Quiller, stoic as ever, is assigned to thwart a resurgent Khmer Rouge movement in Cambodia. The leader of the bloody rebel movement--Pol Pot--is reported to be in poor health. His handpicked successor, General Kheng, is Quiller's target. Left on his own, one can be sure Quiller could handle just about any situation, but as usual, he's saddled with a local control whose enigmatic personality is as much a hindrance as a help. Flockhart is his name, and he's been running a rogue mission parallel to the Bureau's. There's also a sexy photographer who uses her contacts to thwart the Khmer Rouge whenever she can. The series has a strong following, and though there are few surprises here, sometimes that's precisely what devoted fans want.

Format: Hardcover
Adam Hall's Quiller is the spy who makes other literary spies look like kids playing Spy vs Spy. And with the passing of Hall (real name Elliston Trevor), this will be the last Quiller book, and for that the world is a poorer place.
Quiller Salamander contains all the elements that make reading Quiller delicious: the pragmatic, thoughtful, scarily capable Quiller faced with an impossible mission in impossible circumstances, in a story populated with genuine, solid characters, in an authentic-feeling world. Some spy stories delight in their improbability; Quiller's work is real, in the actual world we all live in. Quiller doesn't rely on gadgets and tricks; he doesn't even routinely carry a gun. But he accomplishes more in a single mission than most of us could in a lifetime. Hall's writing style packs more action in a paragraph than most Hollywood movies can fit in two hours.
Re-reading (for example) Ian Fleming's James Bond books just makes me feel embarrassed. But I will enjoy re-reading Quiller all my life, as I enjoy Sherlock Holmes. If you want to immerse yourself in another world, meet Quiller.

I have been a book reader my entire life. This Author (who passed away a few years ago) shall be deeply missed. Written with intelligence and in a manner that the characters (and their souls) become alive on the paper in my hands.

It is very likely you have never heard of this author, nor his Quiller series.

Warning :) Know up front that if you order one of them, you shall (over time) order all of them.

Run do not walk and gather up many enjoyable evenings with all of the Quiller novels.

A deep thank you Elleston Trevor, aka Adam Hall for providing me with your words.

Format: Audio Cassette
In New Zealand, where I live, haere ra is a Maori term meaning more than goodbye. It expresses sorrow at the departure, regret at the necessity for parting, hope for a reuniting in the future.
Adam Hall, creator of Quiller, is no more. Quiller has performed his last service with his usual stoicism, his acknowledged courage, his down-at-heel humanity.
I've enjoyed meeting with Quiller on a regular basis; I regret that he shall tell me no new tales.
However, I have his old tales to refresh my mind as to what an extraordinary character he was.
Haere ra, Quiller.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I jumped at the chance to pick up this 18th (and second to last) novel in the Quiller series. If you're a fan of the others, this one won't disappoint. Written in Hall's characteristic jump-action style, the story keeps you engaged throughout. Hopefully Amazon will offer the final novel in the series, as well (Quiller Balalaika), the only one I'm missing from the series.

...this author did to the spy thriller--don't be put off by the number of pages, each is fast-paced and the writing style is both accessible as well as being completely original--with all the hoopla over Brosnan quitting the Bond series, Broccoli and co. could do no wrong using this character and series as a template--HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
