A gripping thriller, The Nazi Hunter mixes fierce partisan Washington politics, the search for ex-Nazi criminals, and a crazed, right-wing militia intent on bringing down the government.
Nicknamed “the Nazi Hunter”, Marek Cain, deputy director of the Office of Special Investigations at the Justice Department, has for 10 years been the point man for tracking down ex-Nazis who have fraudulently entered the United States since World War II and bringing them to justice.
Late one afternoon, a distraught German woman eludes security and slips into Cain’s office. “I have documents,” she says, “important documents only for the Nazi Hunter.” She promises to bring them the next day. When she doesn’t show, he dismisses her as just another crackpot. But when he reads in the Washington Post the next morning that the woman has been brutally murdered, he senses he’s on to something big. He must find those documents. The trail leads from Washington to Florida, to Boston, to Germany and Ukraine, and eventually to the Belzec extermination camp in Poland, where half a million Jews were murdered in the winter of 1942.
The Nazi Hunter is a thriller that combines romance, political intrigue, music, religion, and culture. Meticulously researched, it takes the listener on an intellectual journey into the seamy side of Washington, the heart of darkness in Europe, and the lair of America’s fascist militias. Nobody who hears it will fail to be entertained, amused, and profoundly moved.

The story was interesting, if a bit too convoluted. It needed to decide if it was a mystery/thriller, a love story, or a story about religious faith. The author was trying to accomplish too much in one book. Perhaps he's setting up for a series and so he was world building, but there's no indication of that. Still, it held my interest and the mystery/thriller part was a unique take (to me anyway) on hunting Nazis.
However the narration was awful. It was flat and featureless, with very little inflection. Unless there was an accent, the male characters all sounded pretty much alike, as did the female characters. It would have worked better if it had simply been read with no attempt at doing 'voices'.
There was one twist too many at the end which I felt ruined much of the story. It made the evil of the Nazi aspect seem cheap and facile rather than the powerful indictment it had been.
