In this classic thriller, Ira Levin imagines Dr Josef Mengele's nightmarish plot to restore the Third Reich. Alive and hiding in South America, thirty years after the end of the Second World War, Mengele gathers a group of former colleagues for a sinister project - the creation of the Fourth Reich. Ageing Nazi hunter Yakov Lieberman is informed of the plot but before he hears the evidence, his source is killed . . .

Spanning continents and inspired by true events, what follows is one of Levin's most masterful tales, both timeless and chillingly plausible.

Praise for Ira Levin:

'Levin is the Swiss watchmaker of the suspense novel' Stephen King

Review quote

Ira Levin's most inventive plot since Rosemary's Baby. Extremely clever, consisting of familiar Levin themes - biological engineering, the rebirth of the devil and human automation * New York Times * Unputdownable novel about a plan to create the Fourth Reich. A clever and chilling vision of biological engineering * Woman & Home * Levin was the master of the high-concept thriller. Here, he fuses together two of the major concerns of his era - Nazi war criminals at large in Latin America, and the emerging science of cloning - to concoct a ripping yarn * Jonathan Freedland, the Week * Ira Levin's most inventive plot since Rosemary's Baby. Extremely clever, consisting of familiar Levin themes-biological engineering, the rebirth of the devil, human automation. * New York Times. *
