This is one of the first adventure/spy novels I read and I became a firm fan of Quiller and Adam Hall.
The Quiller Memorandum which was also known as The Berlin Memorandum was written by Adam Hall in 1965. Hall introduced Quiller in this book as a British intelligence officer in the very secret body known as ‘the Bureau’. Quiller was also said to have been in the secret services during World War II. The Bureau is a shady organisation whose purpose was originally to prevent any possible increaseo in German militarism, such as a fourth Reich.
Quiller was a specialist in Nazi clandestine organizations such as the ‘ratlines’ which were used by Nazis to escape trial. The book is set in the mid-sixties where Quiller is seconded by the Bureau to give secret intelligence information to the Z Commission which is West Germany’s war crimes investigatitive agency. Quiller is persuaded by the bureau to investigate the plans of a secret Nazi secret. He readily does so, as the Nazis have killed one of his friends.
A classic read that is sure to enthrawl.
