The Eighth Dwarf

Ross Thomas: The Eighth Dwarf (UK 2014)

From the Publisher:
Searching for a killer of Nazi war criminals, an ex-spy finds an unlikely ally.
Nicolae Polscaru, a three-and-a-half-foot-tall dwarf, is tossed into a Hollywood swimming pool by four drunken screenwriters, who take bets on how long he can tread water. Minor Jackson, his OSS training still fresh a year after World War II's end, beats the bullies senseless and pulls Nicolae from the water. A friendship is born.

Jackson is broke, his spying days over, and Nicolae offers him a job. A former spy himself, the globetrotting Romanian has a commission to find Kurt Oppenheimer, an expert assassin of high-ranking Nazis. Kurt won't stop killing, no matter what the bloodshed will do to the fragile world peace, and the Soviets, the British, and the remains of the Nazi High Command all want his head. Jackson will beat them all to finding Kurt -- unless his new friend betrays him first.

The Eighth Dwarf

Ross Thomas: The Eighth Dwarf (USA 1988)

From the Publisher:
Ex-OSS operative Minor Jackson was broke when he pulled the sputtering dwarf out of the Beverly Hills swimming pool in the summer of '46. but Nicholas Ploscaru--dwarf, Romanian nobleman, genius, spy, love-object for fascinated women--has an almost-legal scheme to make them both rich. Relatives of Kurt Oppenheimer, who vanished in Germany during the war, will pay them handsomely to locate him.

Unknown to Jackson, Oppenheimer is a slightly crazed, but highly efficient assassin who has continued to murder ex-Nazi leaders after the war. He's being sought by the Americans, the Russians, the British, and, quite possibly, the Israelis--all of whom have their reasons for wanting the killer alive.

As Oppenheimer skillfully steals acrss a divided Germany in pursuit of his victims, Jackson and the dwarf play one country against another in a dangerous game of intrigue and entrapment, leading to a totally unexpected conclusion.
