Hunter said, 'They made a try last night.'
'A try?' said Meres. 'They didn't succeed?'
'Far from it,' Hunter said. 'It was something of a fiasco, I'm afraid. Callan killed one of them - and both their dogs.'
'He did that without a gun?'
'Certainly,' said Hunter. 'He's very able you know.'

David Callan has proved himself a ruthless and effective assassin working for a small section of British intelligence. As a consequence he has made many enemies and very few friends.
The Russians have uncovered a British spy inside the KGB but are willing to trade. The price they demand for the mole's safe return is the death of Callan, in revenge for being a thorn in their side. Callan has no say in the matter; he is to be sacrificed. Yet even with his eyesight failing and his guns, money and passport all taken from him, Callan has no intention of going quietly. Isolated, betrayed and disadvantaged, he is hunted across London by three KGB killers in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, but proves that some mice, even when cornered, can defend themselves.
Russian Roulette was the second novel by James Mitchell to be based on the characters he created in the iconic television series Callan starring Edward Woodward, which ran from 1967 to 1972. Top Notch Thrillers are proud to bring the book back into print after an absence of over 35 years, alongside the first 'Red File for Callan' novel under its original title A Magnum for Schneider.
