Item description for Quiller Solitaire (Quiller series) by Adam Hall...

Posing as an international arms dealer to unveil the truth behind rumors of a bomb threat in Europe, Quiller infiltrates a group of religious Euro-terrorist fanatics whom he must stop from carrying out a suicidal terrorist act. Reprint.

Publishers Description
Never have Quiller's survival skills been so crucial as in the eerily prophetic mission code-named “Solitaire.” When the body of the agent he was supposed to protect is discovered in the burnt wreck of a car, Quiller must unveil the truth behind rumors of a bomb threat somewhere in Europe. Posing as an international arms dealer, he infiltrates Nemesis, a group of deeply religious Euro-terrorist fanatics who follow a psychopathic and extremely intelligent leader. Quiller's final meeting with Nemesis transpires on Pan Am Flight 905, which carries 20,000 pounds of explosives and 40 cylinders of nerve gas—and has disappeared from the radar screens. Quiller alone must stop the plane and its suicidal terrorist crew from reaching their unknown destination.

Reviews - What do customers think about Quiller Solitaire (Quiller series)?

One of the best thrillers I have ever read  Mar 21, 2006
This was the first "Quiller" novel I have read and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a "thinking persons" book. It read a chapter at a time only to be put down to absorb the logic and planning of Quiller. I won't give anything away, but reading Robert Littel's endorsement was chilling...if the CIA didn't read this book, perhaps some others did. This is a good read and I hope you enjoy it as I did.
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!
Where's Quiller when we need him?  Aug 13, 2004
Elleston Trevor honored me with a rare author's proof and I have a particularly soft spot for this Q caper, not least because it demonstrates his nom-de-plume Adam Hall's absolute determination to give readers full value, starting with each story sending Q down an even more suicidal hole than the one before.

Of all the adventures, 'Solitaire' is the one that most resoundingly drives home a lesson taught by 9/11, namely that you can wire and bureaucratise your spook setup all you like, but it counts for naught unless you have the requisite 'ferrets' working the dark side and able to deliver the right intelligence for the automatons to crunch.

This is an assignment Q wants - badly. He owes a man a death and he'll get it. Mission: thwart a terrorist group, for which (as so often) Q needs to be drawn into the opposition's den.

The 9/11 connection takes the form of Quiller aboard a jetliner with only seconds to defuse a bomb.

My opinion is neither here nor there: everything this spymaster poet delivered was exquisite and brutal and this is one of his best. With book trade heros like Otto Penzler doing their thing, we'll perhaps see Hall recognized for the master he is, and a new generation of readers flock to the Quilliad.

Full marks to this site's editors of these reviews to permit the link to the fine homage page to Trevor's work.

Anyone who enjoys top-rate thrillers and hasn't yet discovered Quiller is in for a major treat.
