"It all began when Amelia Schneider Johnson died with over three million dollars in bonds in a tin trunk underneath her bed. The search for a relative wove its way through eight thousand claims only to lose itself in Nazi Germany at the beginning of the war. Then in 1950 the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania decided to attach the estate, and Messrs. Lavater, Powell & Sistrom sent George Carey to Europe to find a dead man. What he found was an interpreter who still hated Germans, a priest who was holding something back, a Greek guerrilla who wouldn't talk, and a strange trail that led from Stuttgart to Yugoslavia before it came to its entirely unexpected end."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
