Summer of 1945. Europe in ruins. Stealthily, human vermin begin to slip from their lairs. Soviet spies, war criminals bent on escape, Haganah operatives, thieves, the profiteers and the con-artists join in the chaos. In Zurich, American intelligence agent Harry Braham picks up the trail of a renegade turncoat bent on making a fortune from art looted by his Nazi friends. Rather than stop the trade in stolen art, Braham’s bosses want him to befriend the man and convince him to send some of his Nazi cronies back into Soviet-occupied Europe as double agents. Back in the States, moves are afoot to close down America’s overseas intelligence services. Once again, Braham finds himself operating alone against familiar adversaries. From Berlin to Moscow to the slopes of the Alps danger stalks everyone in the quest for The Last Klimt.
