(From the publisher):
Throughout the length and breadth of Italy, his name was a curse. He was Il Lupo... the Wolf... an Englishman fighting for Mussolini and Fascism.
He had come to Italy in the middle thirties, a mild-mannered civil engineer... and finished up as the most ruthless fighter for Fascism that the system ever produced.
He was bitter, intolerant, fanatical. The years had given him a scarred face, four Italian and two German decorations for valour... and a silver plate in his head. They had fashioned a right hand which moulded itself to a Luger automatic as though it had been born around one... a strange destiny for an English engineer.
The years had given him something else too. They had given him the third part of a key to the whereabouts of a treasure hoard worth millions; a treasure hoard hidden by Mussolini and intended to finance the rebirth of Fascism.
