    The Lonely Skier Kindle à The Lonely Epub / lonely pdf, skier ebok, The Lonely book, The Lonely Skier KindleHaving read this I am a little confused as to why it is Ian Fleming and not Hammond Innes who is our classic writer of thrillers This is a gripping and fast paced story with Nazi gold and amazing depictions of skiing thrown in Not a dry martini in sight nor the endless card games that Fleming is so obsessed with You won't forget this book in a hurry
