Alive and hiding in South America, the fiendish Nazi Dr. JosefMengele gathers a group of former colleagues for a horrifyingproject—the creation of the Fourth Reich. Barry Kohler, a younginvestigative journalist, gets wind of the project and informsfamed Nazi hunter Ezra Lieberman, but before he can relay theevidence, Kohler is killed.
Thus Ira Levin opens one of the strangest and most masterful novels of his career. Why has Mengele marked a number ofharmless aging men for murder? What is the hidden link thatbinds them? What interest can they possibly hold for their killers: six former SS men dispatched from South America by the mostwanted Nazi still alive, the notorious “Angel of Death“? Oneman alone must answer these questions and stop the killings—Lieberman, himself aging and thought by some to be losing hisgrip on reality.
At the heart of The Boys from Brazil lies a frightening contemporary nightmare, chilling and all too possible.
