KIRKUS REVIEW

Not as shaded in tone as Freemantle's earlier ones, but a vengefully sustained story which won't permit the dust to settle in the ashes of Buchenwald. Ostensibly, thirty years later, there are several parties interested in a box of gold said to have been retrieved from a lake in Austria. Actually this is just a prelude to the stalk of one Kurnov, a Russian stress scientist, formerly a Nazi with a surgically acquired new face who disintegrates under the actuality of his theorizing when two determined Israelis leave him no sanctuary anywhere. Brutal in spots but the action is firm and hortatory.
