View all copies of this ISBN edition:

When university professor Robert Branch learns of the death of his best friend, he knows that it couldn't have been suicide. The murder was arranged by a Nazi espionage group operating on campus. He also knows that the Nazis will have him eliminated, too, as soon as it is convenient. He's even narrowed his choice of executioner down to three: a psychotic homosexual, a respected educator--and the woman he loves. The only trouble is, no one will believe him.

Book Description:

This first Ross Macdonald—a novel of homefront espionage during WWII, published in 1944—shows off all of the writer’s qualities for which he has been widely praised.  

About the Author:

Ross Macdonald (1915-1983) was the pen name of Kenneth Millar. Born near San Francisco but raised in British Columbia, he returned to the United States as a young man and published his first novel in 1944. For over twenty years he lived in Santa Barbara and wrote mystery novels about the fascinating and changing society of his native state. He is widely credited with elevating the detective novel to the level of literature with his compactly written tales of murder and despair. His works have received awards from the Mystery Writers of America and of Great Britain, and his book The Moving Target was made into the movie Harper in 1966. In 1982 he was awarded the Eye Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Private Eye Writers of America.
