The Man Who Wanted Tomorrow.



Publication: Jonathan Cape, 1975, London

First edition. Author's third book. Publicity brochure laid-in. Former owner's inked name on front fly leaf, else fine in dust jacket. Four boxes hidden by the Nazis in a lake, become the focal point of international attention. The special Jewish operation finds three boxes contain gold bars, and an incalculable fortune in jewels. But the fourth box allegedly contains files on high-ranking Nazi Party members who escaped the Nuremberg Trials. Clearly the box is not only important to the Jews, but also vital to those Nazis whom the files incriminate. Great psychological thriller.
