An older, cynical, and embittered Quiller is running on empty. He needs his vacation badly, but is suddenly sent on an urgent mission to Moscow. Schrenk, a British agent and an old partner of Quiller's, has been captured and tortured by the Russians in Lubyanka Prison. Schrenk has now escaped but has disappeared, making no contact with his superiors in London. Quiller's mission is to find him.
Tony F's peculiar faults have become part of the audible experience of Quiller. We know he can speak passable German, French, and Italian. So why oh why does he insist on mispronouncing every foreign place name in every book. Maybe that is just so infuriatingly English that somehow it fits.
