Brimming with surprising characters, chilling political revelations, and a heart-pounding climax, The Nazi Hunter is a thrilling debut and “an action-packed story,” says Jewish Book World.A gripping thriller, The Nazi Hunter mixes fierce partisan Washington politics, the search for ex-Nazi criminals, and a crazed, right-wing militia intent on bringing down the government. Nicknamed “the Nazi Hunter,” Marek Cain, deputy director of the Office of Special Investigations at the Justice Department, has for ten years been the point man for tracking down ex-Nazis who have fraudulently entered the United States since World War II and bringing them to justice.
One late afternoon, a distraught German woman eludes security and slips into Cain’s office. “I have documents,” she says, “important documents only for the Nazi Hunter.” She promises to bring them the next day. When she doesn’t show, he dismisses her as just another crackpot. But when he reads in the Washington Post the next morning that the woman has been brutally murdered, he senses he’s on to something big. He must find those documents. The trail leads from Washington to Miami to Boston, back to the Belzec concentration camp in Poland, where half a million Jews were murdered in the winter of 1942, and into the lair of America’s fascist militias.

"Nicknamed "The Nazi Hunter," Mark Cain - deputy director of the Office of Special Investigations - tracks down and brings to justice ex-Nazis who have quietly slipped into the country since World War II. But on a rainy November afternoon, it's a woman wearing a red brooch who slips past security and into Cain's office. "I am looking for the Nazi hunter," she says. "I have documents - important documents." She promises to show him the documents when they next meet, but she never returns. At first, Cain dismisses her as just another crackpot, but when the Washington Post reports that a woman wearing a red brooch has been brutally murdered, he suspects he may be on to something big. He must find those documents!" "Meanwhile, the Republicans have taken control of Congress, and the newly elected Speaker of the House can't wait to cut big government down to size. The threat of budget hearings hangs over Cain's head, but he knows that the Office of Special Investigations is immune from elimination - or is it?" "As Cain slides further into a tangled web of secrets and murder, he realizes that he has entered a race for his life - one that will draw him from the vicious halls of Washington politics, through the dark heart of Europe's past, and into the savage lair of America's right-wing militias."--BOOK JACKET.
