Storyline

An American lawyer on vacation in Europe is asked by a book publisher to stop by the Austrian town of Salzburg to see a photographer who's taking pictures for a book on picturesque Austrian lakes. Upon his arrival he senses that something is wrong when the photographer seems to have vanished, leaving a near panic-stricken wife and a sinister, secretive brother. Before he knows it, the lawyer finds himself mixed up with spies, assassins, and the hunt for a list made up by the Nazis during World War II of people who collaborated with them.

The Salzburg Connection Book & Film
6 July 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The Salzburg Connection was a very entertaining book that was loaned to me by an enthusiastic reader some 10 years ago. I was able to read it swiftly as a result of its good readability. Yet to see the film that does not appear to be on DVD at this time. Otto Preminger's brother, Ingo, who had been a lawyer in Vienna before going to USA(1911-June 7 2006) produced the film version of this story. The book was of interest because it dealt with aftermaths of the Nazi era and possible burials(some came to pass) of treasures and archives by the former Thousand Year Reich. It tells of new borders created after 1945 over much of Europe as spoils of war and probable schemes people went to in this part of the world to locate such treasures that are still being found or revealed to this day.
