Publisher's Summary

To prevent the rebirth of one of the cruelest regimes in history, an ex-CIA agent goes Nazi hunting in master storyteller Andrew Kaplan's riveting thriller.

In the hell of Auschwitz, the devil was named Mengele. His atrocities were unspeakable, and among his victims were the wife and child of a man named Wasserman, who was forced to watch them die. Mengele survived the war, disappearing into hiding in South America, and Wasserman ran too - fleeing to America to make a fortune in pornography. Now he is dying of cancer, but before he goes, he wants to see Mengele dead.

To hunt the evil doctor, he recruits John Caine, an ex-CIA agent whose time in Vietnam gave him his own close-up view of evil. Seeking the Angel of Death in the jungles of South America, Caine discovers a sinister conspiracy code-named Starfish and realizes that Mengele is only the beginning.

    "Distracting Mispronunciations"
    Would you listen to Hour of the Assassins again? Why?

    Only if it were read by someone else.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Stephen Bel Davies’s performances?

    If I were narrating a book that contained words in a language that I don't speak, I would ask for assistance from a native speaker. Mr. Davies so mangles most German names and words that if I didn't have the Kindle text to consult I wouldn't have known what he was attempting to say. It's bad enough that he continually mispronounces Mengele's name, but his rendering of Seestern, another key plot word, doesn't even sound German.<br/><br/>Davies takes his liberties with a few English and Spanish words as well. Very distracting.
