While desperately searching for answers, Allon will uncover a portrait of evil stretching across sixty years and thousands of lives—and into his own personal nightmares...

Serious suspenseful spy thriller capturing the patience and ingenuity needed to capture a war criminal.

I liked it. Silva uses Allon and his story to discuss how Nazi's criminals were helped by many - including the Catholic Church and the governments of Argentina, Europe and the US -to escape justice after the war. It's sad but true.
