It is a story of revenge, but it is not Monte Christo. It is a story of a young girl and an older man but it is not Lolita.

"Quiller Solitaire" by Adam Hall
The Name of the protagonist-derived from the great critic, Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch is indicative of the standard of writing. Adam Hall, who was Elliston Trevor, was a great writer.
Quiller knows psychology and physiology like the back of his gun hand even though he doesn't carry a gun.
The action - whether it's in his mind or in fact- never stops. He has a strong sense of ethics and duty and he kills( I like to think his name Quiller is pronounced the French way)
Solitaire is a superb spy/thriller-action packed and edgy, it takes Quiller from the refinements of Reigate to the depths of the Sahara dessert.
Seekers after sex will be disappointed because that's not what Hall is about (although there is the standard titillation).
Hall deals in espionage, edge of the seat thrills, and, believe it or not, human relations. This is a grerat read and I am sorry its finished.
