James Mitchell, the series creator, wrote a handful of 'CALLAN' books (not all of them on the mark, which is surprising, as 'CALLAN' is his own creation), with 'RUSSIAN ROULETTE' continuing the tightly-paced action that began in 'A MAGNUM FOR SCHNEIDER' (aka 'A RED FILE FOR CALLAN'). This novel reads like one of the many excellent episodes that Mitchell himself penned for the series, and is certainly better than a good many of his contemporaries.

Simple
These days, the name David Callan is known only to a select few people, and that number has, hopefully, expanded a bit with the release of all the surviving episodes of 'CALLAN: THE SERIES', featuring the dynamic actor, Edward Woodward, in the role that essentially landed him the role of Robert McCall in 'The Equalizer'. And now, that expansion of knowledge has increased with the re-release of the first two novels in the 'CALLAN' series.

James Mitchell, the series creator, wrote a handful of 'CALLAN' books (not all of them on the mark, which is surprising, as 'CALLAN' is his own creation), with 'RUSSIAN ROULETTE' continuing the tightly-paced action that began in 'A MAGNUM FOR SCHNEIDER' (aka 'A RED FILE FOR CALLAN'). This novel reads like one of the many excellent episodes that Mitchell himself penned for the series, and is certainly better than a good many of his contemporaries. The characters of David Callan, the hapless, smelly little lackey called Lonely, the cold-hearted head of 'The Section', known only as 'Hunter' (or 'Charlie'), and the effete yet ruthless assassin Toby Meres, are all fully-realised and fully-utilised here. The reader will most definitely not be bored or disappointed with such a colourful stable.

Here's hoping the rest of the 'CALLAN' series get a reprinting (yes, even the lesser of the novels). Callan & Co are certainly deserving of being reintroduced to their faithful followers, and introduced to a new generation of fans.

Mitchell's novel inspired by his British tv series "Callan", is a masterpiece of story telling, rich characterization, and taut suspense. Having seen the four seasons of the tv show and the feature film "Callan" I immediately became a fan. This being the first novel I've read of the Callan book series it surpassed my expectations! If you like George Smiley from Le Carre's work, or even Len Deighton's "Harry Palmer" novels, you will delighted by this novels!

I loved the television series Callan, so was delighted when some of James Mitchell's novels were reissued. This is a bleak, cynical and unglamorous thriller, just the way a cold war story should be.

Callan is one of the most dangerous men in the Intelligence business which means that his enemies would love to see him dead. That could come to pass because his cold-hearted boss, Hunter, has made a secret deal with the KGB - Callan would be disarmed and left to fend for himself. For most people that would be a sure death sentence but Callan is not most people and he is about to show both sides that he can take care of himself.

James Mitchell's terrific series is a must-read for all fans of spy-fi, especially if you like your agents with grit. Mitchell was an excellent writer but he was even better as a story-teller and his pacing and timing is fantastic.

Rude
For those who know the old British TV series of Callan, about a government secret service assassin, this book will be well worth your while to read. Even for those who don't know, this is an intricately-plotted gritty thriller which would interest anyone who likes a bit of backstabbing, murder and politics.
Callan is one of the British secret service assassins but his boss, Hunter, does a deal with the Russian KGB which involves Hunter allowing three KGB agents to come to England and kill Callan. As part of the deal Hunter leaves Callan weaponless and without the aid of the service or anyone else - except for his smelly thief friend Lonely, of course. With Lonely helping him to try and find a gun and some allies, Callan may just stand a chance against his would-be killers. However, Callan has an eye problem making him progressively blind and his co-worker/rival/enemy Meres is there to help make his life a shortened misery so the outcome is not so certain. Who is with who and why and what they do to each other - that's what this book is all about. As with all the Callan novels this has many interweaving plots and interconnecting characters which crop up in the TV series and other novels, making you feel like you've just dropped in again into the dreary back-stabbing world of the assassins.
Always fun.

Jwalextell
A gritty cold war thriller, with Callen working as a hitman for an unrecognised British agency. Callen tries to survive as he is used in a cat and mouse game by the agency as they ruthlessly trade undercover blows with the KGB where he is just as expendable as the enemy.

Adrietius
exceptional hero. Great villains. A plot with twist that is not overly complicated. Character development is outstanding. one of the best spy novels out there.
