‘Written with directness and pace, promises fulfilling reading’
                       Thomas Keneally, Booker prize-winning author of Schindler's List

In 1944 Anthony Eden, British Secretary of State for War, invited Eduard Cjaikowski to dinner—and to take a million in gold to Warsaw in Nazi occupied Poland .......

No-one believed him. So he told no-one. About the knock on the door, the camps,
the killings and the comrades. He kept quiet. About the secret house, the traitor and the hidden planes. And about the gold. Until death beckoned. And then he started.

Gulag to gold—the story of a decent man.

From Cracow to Moskva, Tara to Samarkand. From the deserts of Iraq to the brothels of Algeria, from camp to Army to SOE, he runs, loves, spies and nearly dies.

He hunts Rommel, the last of the Luftwaffe and the renegade Kolanski across a Europe torn by war.

This is about a boy who became a man in an odyssey of love and hate, a compelling insight into one man's war—a story founded in fact.


     ‘Outstanding command of language... an exciting and powerful story of
