WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY STELLA RIMINGTON

It lies somewhere beneath the snow, high in the Dolomites: Nazi gold, tainted with the blood of murdered men. Only a few know its secrets, and one by one they come in search of it - a hot-tempered Italian Comtessa, a racketeering pimp, a Greek criminal, a film-maker and a hapless writer. A tense battle of wits leads to an explosive finale in Innes' classic tale of revenge and deadly greed.

Book Description:

Neil Blair is relishing an expenses-paid holiday in the Italian Dolomites, where he plans to finish his film script. All goes wrong, however, when he stumbles on the location of a hoard of buried Nazi gold. From then on, he faces a terrifying race for his life from a group of murderous criminals.
