First edition.


A titled English newspaperman is fairly exceptional, but Lord Quainton of the Sunday Recorder made things more exceptional by being a titled English newspaperman whose beat was Moscow. (Though actually the Russians had always seemed fairly pleased at having the English aristocracy in their midst.) Then Lord Quainton, or Tim, met the girl of his dreams at a London cocktail party. She was Marya Raczinski, tall, dark, beautiful--and though she looked exotic, she was British. Her father, a Polish chemist and a natrualized British subject, was a survivor of the German concentration camps. As a baby Marya had been sheltered by neighbors, and when her father had been freed by the advancing Russian army, he had taken her to Cologne and eventually to England. It was easier for trained men to get into England and to get jobs once there. Mary's father now worked in a cosmetic firm. Tim, courting Marya, met her father and liked the older man, could understand her devotion to him. Then suddenly a ten-year-old newspaper clipping turned up, saying that a Dr. Stefan Razcinski had been condemned in absentia for war crimes committed in 1944 in Loda camp. Marya couldn't believe the clipping! Just the thought that Tim might even begin to believe it so disgusted her that she broke off their relationship. And Tim, who loved her very much, went to Moscow determined to find out the truth, one way or another, even if it killed him. And it very nearly did.
