Many of those who escaped join military forces and fight against the Nazis. Some are asked to take on secret missions to help defeat Hitler. The skills learned during these missions become invaluable especially after the war when Adolf Eichmann's whereabouts are discovered. The Mossad, an intelligence agency in Israel, sets out to verify the identity of the man believed to be Adolf Eichmann who is living in Buenos Aires. Their mission is to capture him and return him to Israel in order to stand trial for his crimes. Can they carry out their quest undetected before Eichmann slips away?

The discovery, chase, and capture of the infamous Adolf Eichmann is a thrilling account and the book is difficult to put down.
