RATLINES by Stuart Neville. After World War II, Nazi criminals fled to all corners of the globe. Some came to the US, as many as 9,000 were believed to have gone to South America, specifically Brazil (which had 3,000 citizens who joined the party making them the numerically significant country), and to my surprise, Ireland where some local sympathizers had hoped they would defeat the British and perhaps free them from yoke. This tells a fictional tale playing on the true environment that existed in Ireland after the war. Nazis with new names and stolen money were manipulating and still killing others, dreaming of either a return to power or at the least a new personal kingdom. British and Israeli secret police were trying to track them down and exact punishment, while the bad guys were still plying their trade. Albert Ryan now works for the Minister of Justice of the British government and is tasked with cleaning up some of the mess. His record as super Special Forces guy during World War II and Korea makes him adversary is the ex-Nazi Skorzeny who has too many connections, and too much money to take down. Things are going to get ugly. Because Stuart Neville lives in Ireland he can write with authority and has created a novel that is both gripping and informative.
