When the Allies stormed Berlin in 1945, Adolf Eichmann—the Nazi leader whose job it was to exterminate Europe's Jews—shed his SS uniform and vanished. Neal Bascomb's gripping account follows Eichmann as he escapes two American POW camps, slips out of Europe, and makes a new life in Buenos Aires. At the same time, Holocaust survivor Simon Wiesenthal's search for Eichmann becomes a 15-year international manhunt that engages a dogged West German prosecutor, an Argentinean Jew and his daughter, and Israel's budding spy agency Mossad.

"The pursuit, capture, and abduction of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann has been chronicled before, but it is a thrilling story that deserves retelling, particularly since recently uncovered information enhances the drama. [Neal] Bascomb spread a wide net in researching the 15-year hunt, and he fills his book with previously unknown or neglected details, utilizing the remembrances of former Mossad agents, German and American intelligence operatives, and Argentine Nazi sympathizers who tried to find Eichmann after his seizure. Bascomb includes loads of juicy tidbits, such as squabbling within the Israeli government over planning the capture; the indifference of CIA agents, who apparently knew of Eichmann's location; and details on how he managed his escape from Europe. The reactions of his captors as they held him in a Buenos Aires safe house are particularly interesting, as their emotions range from elation to curiosity to cold contempt for the seemingly banal, fearful man who perpetrated monstrous deeds. This is an outstanding account of a sustained and worthy manhunt."—Booklist
