Descrizione

In May 1940 Panzer columns overran France. Many of it's citizens wept at the debacle brought about by their government and it's inept military leaders. Following the defection of the cabinet from Paris, the writing was clearly on the wall. It had taken only five weeks for the 'Blitzkrieg' to overwhelm the vaunted French forces. The world was stunned by the event.

Many people spend years searching for bonanzas while a few simply stumble across them. 'LETHAL SPOILS' focuses on a sensational treasure secreted by a French aristocrat ahead of the advancing invaders. The dying words of an old man guide two German soldiers, Sgt. Frieburg and his younger companion to it's recovery.Neither soldier is imbued with military fervor but they soon develop an entreprenurial spirit and strong bonds of friendship. Prior to being drafted to different theaters of war the men know they must await an end to hostilities before cashing in on their find.......unfortunately a third party has other ideas for it's distribution.

The lives of three men undergo radical changes before the war grinds to a halt. Life in Europe is bleak after five years of slaughter and deprivation. But for those grabbing opportunities the pay-off is rewarding.

In the 60's era, politics, sex and greed result in the death or ruin for those associated with the St.Lucien treasure. A bizarre murder becomes a problem for Chief Inspector Steiner and creates an embarrassing political scandal for the German governmnent before the saga draws to a close.
