"At this time, when the whole of the South-east Asian picture is confused and threatening, Her Majesty's Government consider it highly desirable that a goodwill mission is undertaken by someone who is neither a statesman nor a diplomat but who commands international respect and admiration, particularly in Thailand. Thus in three weeks' time a representative of the Queen is to visit Bangkok on a goodwill tour." With careful precision he said: "During the visit we want you to arrange for his assassination."
Quiller, the meticulous, ice-cold, taught-as-a-spring super agent is in Thailand planning an assassination - in order to prevent one. He knows his opponent is as ruthlessly professional as he is and he also knows to trust no one. As in his famous debut in The Berlin Memorandum, Quiller will work alone.
One of the most original creations in spy fiction, Quiller went on to feature in 18 novels until the death of author Adam Hall (Elleston Trevor) in 1995. This edition contains a previously unpublished essay by Elleston Trevor's son Jean-Pierre, Life Like Quiller, on growing up with his father's famous hero.
