Translated from the french version, hard to get your hands on, but worth the effort to find it -- DADDY by Loup Durand. This strangely-titled book is a thriller set in the 1940's. Thomas, an exceptional 11-year old, holds the complicated codes to 724 Swiss bank accounts. The Nazis want him -- badly. Their operative is a sadistic, highly intelligent Gestapo chief. His mission is to kidnap the child and force him to give over the codes. Although there is plenty of action in this novel, the plot expands like a carefully played psychological chess game between the depraved military man and the young genius, and the stakes are Life and Death. Recommended. ( )

If you like stories about supermen this is the book for you.Three characters have genius IQ's One is a perfect,never miss shot--he also is always at the protagonist's side but never seen..the evil German would be kidnapper is one of the geniuses and each of his actions is spoiled only by the ineptness of his aides. Characters have immense fortunes at their disposal and connections at the highest levels in Swiss banking circles, in Germany's highcommand and in American International Business and Banking. A 12 year old boy with a granite like memory has memorized the account numbers and addresses of thousads of Jewish Germans and must be protected from capture...If this is your type of book, you won't find better.
