Item description for Quiller Salamander (Quiller series) by Adam Hall...
In this 18th adventure in Adam Hall's epic series, Quiller is sent to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where chaos abounds as the deadline for the United Nations--supervised elections approaches. There is fear that Pol Pot, creator of the infamous "killing fields," will fight to return the murderous Communist party, known as the Khmer Rouge, to power. Quiller's only ally is Gabrielle Bouchard, a photojournalist who is waging her own personal war against the Khmer Rouge. Though Pol Pot is deathly ill, Quiller learns that he has carefully chosen a successor who plans to direct the next Cambodian bloodbath. Quiller's mission, code-named "Salamander," leads him deep into the perilous jungles of Phnom Penh, where he must protect not only his own life but also the future of Cambodia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Quiller Salamander (Quiller series)?
Still excellent after many listens. Aug 16, 2007
This is among my top 5 audio books, out of the perhaps 50 that I've listened to over the years. The author's wry sense of humor combines with a gift for suspense to make for an excellent spy novel. But there is also a sensitivity to human emotion that is touching at points. Highly recommended.
Kudos ~ Jan 14, 2005
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.
What the Sex Pistols did to rock music... Aug 24, 2004
...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!

Haere ra, Quiller Mar 8, 2002
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.
