A failed commando raid leads to a global hunt for the last remaining Nazi war criminals
Six Israeli commandos land on a lakeshore in Austria, hunting for something that has been hidden underwater for over thirty years. The lake holds many secrets left behind by the Nazi high command as their regime crumbled in 1945. There are millions of dollars in international currency, bonds, and gold bullion, but the commandos want none of it. They have come for boxes of files—containing information about the hiding places of every Nazi war criminal who evaded judgment at Nuremberg. But the commandos have been caught.
Shotguns sing out, killing all but one of the Israelis. He escapes with one box, which holds nearly $2 million in gold but no information. The assassins recover two of the other boxes. A fourth is missing. Many men will die to find it—a price the Israeli secret service is willing to pay in the hope that justice may finally be served.
