In this first book in the QUILLER series, undercover agent Quiller is asked to take the place of a fellow spy who has recently been murdered in Berlin, in identifying the headquarters of an underground but powerful Nazi organization, Phönix, twenty years after World War II. But when Quiller gets too close, he becomes the hunted and must outsmart Phönix against all odds to both uncover their secrets and stay alive.
