A riveting thriller-style account of what happened to the nazi gold hoard.
The Sayer-Botting archive is a fitting monument to their dedication and research. A tale worth retelling.
The investigators, with immense patience and meticulous attention to detail, have pieced together a story remarkable for reasons other than the fact that this was the world’s biggest robbery.
Reads like the sleazy world described in Graham Greene’s Third Man with several noughts added to the transactions.
It has been a major feat of detection. It looks as though they have solved the mystery, as far as anybody can solve it. And a remarkable story it is. This book is a remarkable detective story, a remarkable effort. If you want to delve into the murky post-war world of racketeering and corruption, where rules were brazenly disregarded, where gold bars and sacks of currency went missing and nobody knew where, it is all here.
A potent double. A book of painstakingly uncovered revelations. It is now told as completely as it will ever be. It is told in considerable detail. Having gone to years of trouble to get it, the authors are understandably minute where detail exists. But this is a small fault in the unfolding of the great scam of all time - the sting in which the stingers win.
Without doubt the best real-life whodunnit since All the President’s Men.
Second World War books are never ending. Nazi Gold is one of the better ones.
A truly amazing story which takes your breath away.
Intelligently and profoundly researched book...fascinating research...they are presenting a carefully documented case. It makes impressive and often thrilling reading - as thrilling as some of the fiction written about the gold in adventure yarns that have earned many post-war novelists their own share of wealth.
