From the back cover: The second novel from Sudetenland author George T. Chronis is a fast-paced detective thriller. The place is Los Angeles, the time is just after World War II during the early days of the Cold War, and people are turning up dead on the streets of Hollywood. A smuggled Nazi ceremonial weapon is hidden somewhere in the city and several factions have no compulsion against killing to possess this objet d’art that conceals a valuable secret. Suspicion falls upon Tom Jarrett, a man with many secrets of his own from the war, who is forced to put his new life on hold so that he can unravel the mystery… if only he can stay alive long enough.
If Alan Ladd were still alive he would be the perfect person to portray Tom Jarrett on the screen. It seems that an objet d’art has been smuggled into Los Angeles and there are individuals who will kill, lots of people, to acquire it. Mr. Chronis has provided us with a highly complicated plot. Tom Jarrett is a really interesting character that develops and become more interesting as the story goes on. “Dead Letter File” is loaded with twists and turns that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Mr. Chronis has provided us with a fairly exciting book and well worth the read.
