The classic thriller of Dr. Josef Mengele's nightmarish plot to restore the Third Reich.Alive and hiding in South America, the fiendish Nazi Dr. Josef Mengele gathers a group of former colleagues for a horrifying project—the creation of the Fourth Reich. Barry Kohler, a young investigative journalist, gets wind of the project and informs famed Nazi hunter Ezra Lieberman, but before he can relay the evidence, Kohler is killed.Thus Ira Levin opens one of the strangest and most masterful novels of his career. Why has Mengele marked a number of harmless aging men for murder? What is the hidden link that binds them? What interest can they possibly hold for their killers: six former SS men dispatched from South America by the most wanted Nazi still alive, the notorious "Angel of Death"? One man alone must answer these questions and stop the killings—Lieberman, himself aging and thought by some to be losing his grip on reality.At the heart of The Boys from Brazil lies a frightening contemporary nightmare, chilling and all too possible.

This author, ira Levin, wrote some groundbreaking novels.this one, however, was a letdown. the film, should have been better , boasting Gregory Peck and that very well regarded English actor, Sir something or other, tussling in a fine sitting room, no stunt actors involved. It's a Nazi-hunt case, think Dr. Joseph Mengele, you'll be in the right ball park. If you are unfamiliar with the issues involved, this is a must-read, must see. something to do with preserving the purity of the Aryan race.....at least the question is not raised whether or no hitler put a bullet into his brain, in the Berlin bunker. Mengele was a true personage, and he had his scientific mad desires. Fictionalized, this could have been a shot heard 'round the world. that it is something quite less, is hard to figure. you may remember that Oliver Stone left the Nazis out of his roster of villains, in his movie from 1990, JFK. I didn't miss them, there. But they are definitely mentioned in this book. How scarey it is, I don't know. Maybe if Oliver had made: EICHMANN, he'd have been more accepted by the mainstream media.
