From the cover: “In a relentless search over an after-war torn Germany, young Paul Leroux had set out to find a single man among millions. Defeated, continuously beaten by a chain of adverse events frustrating his mission, he finally reaches a point of abandoning his frantic errand.
It is in friendly Zurich that he meets Paulette Beauchamps, lonesome, uprooted like himself, driven to him by an identical compassion to love and be loved. Tender days trail along until Paul Leroux encounters Herr Kerb. Suddenly shadows of a vanquished past grow up again into gigantic proportions. Caught in the wilderness of human emotions a man must decide if murder is the only solution to satisfy a long harboured hatred.
Against the warm glow of passing Christmas days Time has no Pity rises to a grim climax when the tolling of church bells are greeting a new year.”
