Description: Kenton a journalist travels to Nuremberg to investigate a top-level meeting, but he boards a train bound for Austria after a bad night of gambling. Stranded with no money, he decides to earn a fee helping a refugee smuggle securities. He soon discovers that the documents he holds have far more than cash value and that they could cost him his life.

Where his judgement sometimes fails him, however, is in his personal life. When he travels to Nuremberg to investigate a story about a top-level meeting of Nazi officials, he inadvertently finds himself on a train bound for Austria after a bad night of gambling. Stranded with no money, Kenton jumps at the chance to earn a fee helping a refugee smuggle securities across the border. Yet he soon discovers that the documents he holds have far more than cash value - and that they could cost him his life ...
