One late afternoon, a distraught German woman eludes security and slips into Cain’s office. I have documents,” she says, important documents only for the Nazi Hunter.” She promises to bring them the next day. When she doesn’t show, he dismisses her as just another crackpot. But when he reads in the Washington Post the next morning that the woman has been brutally murdered, he senses he’s on to something big. He must find those documents. The trail leads from Washington to Miami to Boston, back to the Belzec concentration camp in Poland, where half a million Jews were murdered in the winter of 1942, and into the lair of America’s fascist militias.

This was a good read, mystery mixed with Romance, mixed with suspense, with TRUTH. So tragic all the lives destroyed by the Nazis , the grief the surviving families have had to carry. I never knew about this Camp of Death. What horrors they went thru. The victims are remembered , as well as all who fought, so many dying, to stop the madness. I pray it NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN!!!!
An exciting and we'll written procedural investigation.
WWII junkies, this one's for you. The year is 1994, and there's a suspected Nazi war criminal living in the USA. The central character, an Orthodox Jewish bachelor lawyer working for a federal agency, is intriguing for his innocent, tender personality; the plot is unique for its serpentine movement and unexpected interjections; and the research behind the story development is amazing for its depth and accuracy. You don't have to be Jewish to get caught up in the drama; readers who called it boring in their reviews probably had no interest in the subject to begin with. The point of the book is justice and integrity; and at a time when public sentiment and political correctness demand criticism of Israel, this book offers a sound reason for the necessity for a Jewish homeland. Without being maudlin, Alan Elsner uses the Holocaust as a remote background for a murder mystery and an action piece which I found gripping and so engrossing I almost couldn't put it down.
