The Schirmer Inheritance by Eric Ambler

A book I didn’t want to end as for me there are many questions left unanswered about the characters, but I can’t say what those questions are otherwise I will give away the ending.

However, the ending is satisfying and does close the main story of this book, which leads from early 19th-Century Eastern Europe to the USA of the early post-WWII years and then back across to the European continent. George Carey, the lawyer, and Maria Kolin, the interpreter, head towards The Balkans in search of a man who may be entitled to inherit a lot of money, should he prove to be alive. This proof is very hard to find, but eventually leads to a conclusion in the rather wild and lawless country in the border between Greece and Yugoslavia.
