For those interested in history, particularly about the Second World War, this audiobook should be of interest. I've read books about the Eichmann kidnapping and trial, but the focus of this audiobook is strictly on the kidnapping and it is incredible in its ability to convey suspense while diving in to fascinating detail behind the operation. To its credit, it spends just enough time to paint a picture of the crimes, a little more on the last days of the Reich, and an interesting account of his escape. But it kicks up a notch with his pursuit, discovery and capture. Despite the detail (often a downfall in such narratives) it creates and sustains the suspense. It was very well read and held my interest throughout the story. I've listened to many audiobooks and I would rank this among the top: again, for those who are interested in the over-arching story.

This is probably the best audio book I've ever heard. Where to begin after that? Simply to say that Neal Bascomb has written a taught, highly suspenseful narrative of the capture of one of history's greatest monsters. The book is perfect for audio. All the meticulous details of the planning, Eichman's fearful and almost successful efforts to allude capture, the stalking of the prey, and the execution of an incredible mission are wonderfully portrayed in Paul Hecht's excellent reading. I didn't want it to end.
