Quiller's Run Reviews
2.5 I had high hopes for this one at the beginning, Quiller on his own sounded like a really interesting premise. I ended up somewhat disappointed, partly because it was a rather psychological rather than physical book or in other words a lot more talk than action, partly because it was surprisingly predictable, usually with a Quiller book I have little idea how he is going to get out of a sticky situation and the action and drama of those are what bring the book alive, here I more than halfway guessed what was happening before it happened, even when Quiller hadn't, and, finally, I found the criminal mastermind rather unbelievable.

Quiller resigns from the Bureau as a result of the events of the previous novels and takes on a freelance mission in Southeast Asia, primarily Singapore. This premise is arguably the best part of the book. Quiller's opponent is a 21 year old female drug and arms kingpin who is looking to start a war in Southeast Asia and (Adam Hall fears) potentially trigger WWIII when Soviet-backed communist nations confront US-backed Thailand. (view spoiler)[But it turns out the Bureau has been running the operation all along and has tricked Quiller back into its service.(hide spoiler)] Neither one of the best nor the worst Quiller novels, 3.7 rounded up to a 4.
Quiller always seems a little insane, or rather he knows right where his limits are and seeks to push right past them. Each Quiller novel is more exciting then the last, especially when you don't quite see where the story is going. Just shows how flexible ferrets can be when pushed into a corner.
My husband wants me to read this one - I guess Quiller is a little bit like James Bond.
