A very good first edition, in the original binding. Some slight push-in to the spine, and a small stripe of discoloration to the bottom of the spine. Previous owner's name written inside the front cover. In a good unclipped dust jacket, with a large chip missing from the bottom of the spine. Chipping to top of spine and corners. Small tears to edges of jacket.


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.

All of our books that a have dust wrapper are covered in clear protective, removable film and are packed professionally in bubble wrap and a box for shipping so that they reach you in perfect condition.
