This book proved interesting to read, mainly due to the fact that I had heard very little about Aribert Heim or his actions at the Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp. Despite saying this, I found the book to be surprisingly disappointing with how it managed to handle the story it told. I chose to use the term 'story', as I doubted the accuracy of what I read. At times, it felt the story was not progressing anywhere, almost as if the author was trying to extend the overall length of the book. At times, it felt as if it was going around in circles, with Danny Baz painting a tale more of the painstaking work that would go into hunting down a target such as Aribert Heim.

It made an entertaining read, even if it did not make for a historically believable one. If it was prove to be historically accurate, I could see myself enjoying the read more. I prefer books that are marketed as historically accurate to actually be historically accurate, rather than a tale about how an assassination could have happened.
