This is a rare book, and its story has been made into a movie, starring Peter O' Toole, Omar Sharif, and Christopher Plummer.
This is a powerful World War 2 thriller about a German general who becomes a serial killer. When a Polish prostitute is brutally murdered in German-occupied Warsaw, her killer is identified as a German general.
The investigator, Major Grau narrows the suspects to three generals in the German high command: the heroic Tanz, the cynical Kahlenberge, and the weak Von Seidlitz-Gabler. For years the crime remains unsolved, until the killer strikes again, bringing this mesmerizing mystery to its unforgettable finish. Read this book and find out the full story.
I recall way back to the late 1960s when I was a schoolboy then, the movie was screened in Odeon Cinema at North Bridge Road. But I didn't see it.
By the way, I am looking for the made-in-USA NTSC1 DVD movie. If you have a used DVD and would like to offer it to me at a reasonable price, please post me an email anytime. Please do not offer me those Region Free DVDs made-in-Hongkong, or VCDs made-in-Philippines, or those bootleg copies.
