Publisher's Summary

The first action thriller by the classic adventure writer, set in Italy.
When the Allies invaded Southern Italy in 1943, Mussolini's personal treasure was moved north to safety under heavily armed guard. It was never seen again. Now an expedition plans to unearth the treasure and smuggle it out of Italy. But their reckless mission is being followed - by enemies who are as powerful and ruthless as they are deadly.


What the Critics Say

"As long as meticulous craftsmanship and honest entertainment are valued, and as long as action, authenticity, and expertise still make up the strong framework of the good adventure/thriller, Desmond Bagley's books will surely be read." (Reginald Hill, Twentieth Century Crime and Mystery Writers)
"Mr Bagley has no equal at this sort of thing." (Sunday Mirror)
"The best adventure stories I have read for years." (Daily Mirror)
