The Lonely Skier (Paperback)Hammond Innes (author)
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.
