But Quiller knows that, as always, there's more to his assignment. And he knows, too, that whatever the "more" is, it will come as a potentially fatal surprise.

"A Second Visit"
After his last mission (see QUILLER) and feeling betrayed by the London Bureau, Quiller accepts what seems a freelance assignment involving the drug trade and armed rebellion in Southeast Asia. In Singapore Quiller is nearly killed by assassins of a ruthless female leader named Shoda, and his mission will involve using voodoo-style fear to keep Shoda from igniting a bloodbath in the region.
"I'm in this trade to prove myself. I'm frightened of pushing things to the point where they might blow up - so that's what I go on doing, to prove I'm not frightened." Conscious as always that he is living on borrowed time, the ace "shadow executive" Quiller allows the London Bureau to throw him into a mission that seems already to be running out of control as one agent after another is reported missing or dead, out there in the field.

"Engrossing Cold War spy drama"
Hugo Bishop: He's not a cop, nor a private eye. He simply shows up to help. He's the figure at the edge of the floodlights as a body is pulled from the river.

In Bishop's high-risk world, "The only thing worth going for is checkmate."
"Writing is turgid"

Quiller is asked by London's Bureau to accept a mission with a completely new twist: To work with Russia's formidable and ruthless KGB. The Soviet Union's charismatic leader is headed for a diplomatic visit to East Berlin at a time when tensions surrounding the hated Berlin Wall are at their height. Quiller uncovers more than one conspiracy as he tries to stop a highly sophisticated assassin from killing Russia's General-Secretary.
It's Quiller's most dangerous mission yet, and is also his last for the British intelligence agency so secret that it has no name. No matter that its orders originate at the Prime Minister level; if detected, it would be denied at that and every other level of the government. Quiller's orders this time take the pseudonymous operative to post–Cold War Russia to infiltrate the powerful and omnipresent mafiya that controls every sector and ruble of the country's fragile economy. More ruthless than the Sicilian brotherhood and as conscienceless as the Colombian drug cartels, the mafiya owns top politicians, judges, generals, bankers, and the police. Those it doesn't own it can buy, and those it doesn't choose to buy, it eliminates.
Quiller, the Bureau's top intelligence agent, travels from a clinic in Berlin to the heart of Lubyanka Prison to track down the British agent who has vanished from Moscow.
