Quiller is back-still working without gun, cover or contacts-behind the Iron Curtain, hiding in a city where there is no place to hide. Trusting in a woman who can't be trusted. Rescuing a man he would rather kill. Trying to save a world that is already heading over the brink.
Quiller is "the greatest survival expert among contemporary secret agents." (The New York Times)
Adam Hall is "skillful as ever at stretching suspense to the screaming point." (Publishers Weekly)
