THE EIGER SANCTION

Assassin Jonathan's only true passions involve works of art and loyalty to friends -- leading respectively to work for a more-or-less ept arm of an inept CIA-like agency, and several extracurricular rub-outs of former friends to avenge the victims, also friends. But the well-meaning treachery of the one girl he is warming to results in a simple good-by before the climax in which he climbs a forbidding Alp to chase an unknown target. Killings, triple crosses, and a spaghetti plot -- all with plenty of sauce.
