The Berlin Memorandum / Quiller Memorandum

You are a secret agent working for the British in Berlin. You are due to go home on leave, but you are being followed by your own people, or by the enemy. A man meets you in the theater and briefs you on a plot to revive the power of Na*zi Germany. You do not believe him, but you remember that one of the suspects mentioned was a senior SS officer you met with in the days when you were working as a spy in Na*zi Germany. The next day you make contact with a beautiful girl who may know something. Someone tries to kill both of you. Your name is Quiller. You are the hero of an extraordinary novel which shows how a spy works, how messages are coded and decoded, how contacts are made, how a man reacts under the influence of truth drugs and which traces the story of a vastly complex, entertaining, convincing, and sinister plot.

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.

Quiller Balalaika

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. Chief among the lawless mafiya lords stands a criminally brilliant British national, whom the agency wants taken out of play. Quiller learns that the one man who can help him achieve his goal is impounded in Gulank, the most infamous of all the gulags. Quiller must sneak his way into Gulank, and from a gulag that no prisoner has ever escaped, rescue the only person who can save his last, internationally vital mission.

The Flight of the Phoenix

Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award They are twelve men who shouldn’t be alive. They have survived the sudden blinding sandstorm that crippled their air freighter. Survived a desperate crash landing in the Sahara of Central Libya. Survived to face the slow, dry, agonizing death of the desert. Twelve men with one hope: to build a new plane from the wreckage of their Skytruck and make a flight out of hell. Only one man could build such a plane: Stringer, the brilliant and obsessed engineer. Only one man could fly it: Towns, the arrogant and tormented pilot. Both had been aboard the Skytruck, but both are mortal enemies whose consuming hatred for each other is a danger greater than the desert itself. This All Time Classic Thriller was twice made into a major motion picture in 1965 & in 2004

The Damocles Sword

In the darkest days of WW II British Intelligence concocted a plan that would stymie the Germans. But it required a very brave man to carry it out, one who could infiltrate the elite SS corps. Martin Benedict was the man, and all went well until his cover got blown. Remarkably, success was still possible but at an increased risk. Could he bring it off? The answer reveals itself in an agony of suspense, which is no surprise, for Elleston Trevor is a master of the genre.

The Penthouse

At nine o’clock on a mild October night two men are shot in the lobby of Manhattan’s luxury Park Tower. Minutes later, a police chief listens to a voice on the telephone from The Penthouse. ‘I’ve jammed the elevators and stacked 40 pounds of nitro against the stairway door. Break it open and you’ll blow this building right across Central Park.’ Tina St. Clair, beautiful and rich, hears the same words…
but she is only inches away from the speaker, trapped in her apartment by this crazy who wants to love her. She has never had to fight for anything in her life…
but she had better fight now! ‘Trevor is greatly talented. One never doubts the absolute reality of every page he writes.’ The Times, London
