  • AuthorMANNING AND COLES

THIS BOOK A TOAST TO REMEMBER BU MANNING AND COLES WAS PUBLISHED BY DOUBLEDAY AND COMPANY IN 1941.. SYNOPSIS: Joseph Goebbels is fuming. It’s the mid-1930s and the Nazi Minister of Propaganda has a nice little racket going. He and his cohorts are allowing Jews to slip out of Germany in return for 80 percent of their assets. But longtime Nazi party member Klaus Lehmann, the Chief of the German Police, is too much of a prig to let him get away with it. And given that Lehmann was one of Hitler’s earliest supporters, he’s virtually untouchable. In the meantime, British Intelligence is going around in circles. Someone in Germany is sending them messages in a code that hasn’t been used since World War I. When it was first published in 1941 in the U.S., A Toast to Tomorrow (Pray Silence in Britain), along with its predecessor Drink to yesterday, was heralded by famed critic Anthony Boucher as “a single long and magnificent novel of drama, intrigue and humor.” Howard Haycraft, the dean of mystery historians, called the two books “superior” examples of the new wave of realistic spy-and-intrigue novels, told with a “mood of subtle understatement.” A current critic, mystery bookseller Barbara Peters of the Poisoned Pen, called this darkly humorous novel her “favorite espionage novel of all time.” IT IS 310 PAGES IN LENGTH AND IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION HAVING BEEN READ PROBABLY ONCE OR NOT AT ALL. OTHER BOOKS ARE AVAILABLE. FOR OTHER ITEMS OF HOUSEHOLD INTEREST, VINTAGE COLLECTABLES AND ANTIQUES PLEASE VISIT MY OTHER ADS.
