This was a pretty good a read.

If you're a stickler for realism then the story line is a bit of a stretch, however if you can step back and enjoy it for what it is, then it's a pretty good mystery / investigation / nazi story.

The very basic plot is that an offsider of Dr Mengele of Auschwitz is fleeing American law enforcement, whilst also finishing Nazi Germany's work and exterminate all Jews.

There's a few unforeseen twists/plot developments and overall it's a pretty entertaining read. ( )
  HenriMoreaux | Apr 9, 2013 |
The Last Nazi is a sometimes silly, often melodramatic, and not remotely believable tale of a hunt for an old Nazi. Adalwolf, who once assisted Dr. Mengele, is now in his seventies, and is attempting to create a doomsday virus. I'm not sure how this person would have been able to keep up with scientific development and have been able to get the resources to pull of such a thing, but why sweat the details since this author hasn't. There was not a whole lot to like about this novel, other than some suspense and plot turns, but it would not be enough to recommend reading this. I would stay away from the last Nazi.
