KIRKUS REVIEW

The adventure story, in modern terms and with a well maintained momentum, this tells of the assignment of Britisher Havilland when he is thrown in with a strange, suspect and mutually suspicious group. With Ingrid, with whom he falls in love- Sidney, a Zionist-Peters, a special agent- and Gabriel Waters, more German than English, none of whom Havilland can trust, Havilland escapes some murders in London for the mission to Poland to trace the rumor that Hitler is still alive. From Poland to Zurich to the Russian Zone, Havilland is used and abused by his associates, realizes that the stalk is a decoy for Sidney's traffic in illegal immigrants into Palestine, and that this is again a blind for other criminal activities... Involved, a little improbable, this is not the best of its kind but is satisfactorily sustained.
