|Plot Summary of The Last Nazi|
St. Martin's, Aug 2003, 24.95
Though he is a foster son, sixteen years old Adalwolf behaves like a chip off the old block, emulating the worst traits of his mentor research scientist Dr. Josef Mengele. He calms down the young victims undergoing inhuman experiments. When the Nazis lose, everyone assumes that Adalwolf died in the final days.
Almost six decades later, agents of the Justice Department's Office of Special Investigations accompany a SWAT team trying to capture the evil but brilliant Adalwolf. Among the squad of “Nazi Hunters is attorney Melissa Gale, who has hunted the butcher for several years while having trying to have a baby with her journalist husband. However, she is soon going to learn how diabolical her foe is as he has developed a virus that will wipe out the entire global Jewish population with Melissa as his carrier.
This is a taut thriller that may turn out to be the year's best with its brilliantly developed story line that cleverly spins into an incredible moral dilemma. From the beginning to the end Adalwolf proves to be one of the more infamous villains in a long time. His final solution is frightening yet seems plausible because the creation of designer viruses is a potential by-product of the genome mapping. Fans who read THE LAST NAZI will not make this the last Stanley Pottinger novel they ever read as he raises the thriller bar to unbelievable heights.
