Sluggish and convoluted wartime intrigue from the author of The Ritter Double Cross and The Algonquin Project. British intelligence agent Sanderson, who spent five years in Sechsenhausen concentration camp, seeks ""a settlement, a revenge, a sort of justice"" vis a vis Helmut Wolff, the SS colonel responsible for his ordeal. Wolff had been nearly iced on the Russian front but he surfaces again in postwar Germany with a scheme to recover a small part of the Reichsbank treasure--ten tons of gold--with the aid of the US military governor of Garmisch. Now try and figure out the connection between a certain Italian mafioso and the Mittenwald syndicate. Better yet, don't bother.
