Summary"Hunting Eichmann follows Adolf Eichmann as he escapes two American POW camps, hides out in the mountains, slips out of Europe on the ratlines, and builds an anonymous life in Buenos Aires. Meanwhile, concentration camp survivor Simon Wiesenthal's persistent search for the monster evolves into an international manhunt that involves a bulldog West German prosecutor, an Argentinean Jew and his beautiful daughter, and a budding, ragtag spy agency called the Mossad... the capture of Eichmann and efforts by Israeli agents to smuggle him out of Argentina for one of the twentieth century's most important trials bring the narrative to a stunning conclusion." —Publisher
