Spymaster Allen Dulles and his two female sidekicks take on the corrupt Swiss banking establishment whose vaults are full of Nazi gold following World War II

Blackwell North Amer
The Swiss Account is an explosive inside look at Switzerland's financing of the Third Reich, and it gives us a Switzerland none of us have known. Due to its neutrality, Switzerland is the spy capital of Europe, but by 1945 our chief spymaster, Allen Dulles, is faced with a foe as ruthless as Himmler's SS - the Swiss banking establishment. Their vaults bulge with Nazi gold, the bloody plunder of Hitler's tyranny. With it the Germans are buying high-tech military hardware to create an atom bomb.
Dulles' job is to halt this profiteering and he dispatches three young recruits - Nancy Reichman, a beautiful American attache, Peter Burckhardt, Swiss heir to major banking interests, and Felicitas Burckhardt, a brilliant physicist - on a daring, top-secret mission to Bavaria.
They have three goals: to stop the shipments of Swiss arms to Germany, to sabotage the German atom bomb, and against all odds, to stay alive.

Erdman seems like he couldn't decide whether to write fiction or non-fiction. He wrote about WWII Swiss bank accounts in a scholarly manner with copious footnotes, then he added some fictional characters at the beginning and end. Tedious reading in parts.
