Quiller Barracuda

Quiller Barracuda

Jacket description...

He's back. The Bureau's top agent, first introduced in The Quiller Memorandum, has been assigned another mission. A seasoned shadow executive, Quiller knows how to break rules, how to get the job done, and survive against killing odds.

Down at the Miami waterfront, a stable Bureau agent has gone rogue. Quiller is sent on what was thought to be an errand, but it turns out to be much more. And as he scours the white beaches and cool waters of the Caribbean he's is faced with something beyond his experience--an invisible conspiracy of unimaginable evil.

Adam Hall presents Quiller Barracuda, a startling new episode in the renowned Quiller series. This is an action-packed novel of relentlessly tightening suspense: a mission the status of which is Classification One, signifying global importance, with nothing less than the future of the White House at stake.

     "Why the hell should I tell you?"
     In a muted scream and we jerked our heads to look at Fisher and I said, "You don't have to. We didn't—"
