An extraordinary novel about one of history's most reviled figures, written as an action-packed historical biography

For three decades, until the day he collapsed in the Brazilian surf in 1979, Josef Mengele, the Angel of Death who performed horrific experiments on the prisoners of Auschwitz, floated through South America in linen suits, keeping two steps ahead of Mossad agents, international police and the world's journalists.

In this rigorusly researched factual novel--drawn almost entirely from historical documents--Olivier Guez traces Mengele's footsteps through these years of flight.

This chilling novel situates the reader in a literary manhunt on the trail of one of the most elusive and evil figures of the twentieth century.
