The Nazi
He commanded a network that stretched across Europe, targeting and delivering millions of people to the death camps. He followed every order, and he was very good at his job. But when the war ended, he disappeared without a trace. Would Adolf Eichmann ever face justice for his crimes?

The Hunters
A teenage girl. Her blind father. A secret agent. A lawyer. A man who dedicated his life to tracking Nazis. A carefully chosen team of expert spies.

Several had survived the camps. Nearly all of them lost family there. And in work spanning fifteen years, they found Eichmann on the other side of the globe.

The Mission
The goal was clear: Capture Eichmann and bring him to trial before the world. But for the group of spies charged with carrying it out, it would require false identities, precise teamwork, split-second timing, patient surveillance, and courage beyond anything they’d ever achieved. Their actions would shape history—if they survived and succeeded.

This riveting true story is a Holocaust tale, a spy thriller, and a powerful account of justice sought and served.

Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “Thriller fans will find all their favorite plot points here, from disguises and coded messages to abduction and interrogation, and Bascomb keeps on the right side of the fine line that distinguishes suspense from sensationalism.”

    Horn Book Guide

  • “Bascomb has a knack for turning complex detail into a suspenseful, heart-pounding narrative…The depth of research in this fine work is evident in the level of information provided.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Draw[s] on a wealth of sources that include original interviews…Tension rises from the pages, thanks to Bascomb’s command of pacing, judicious use of quoted material…and strong descriptions. It’s nonfiction as thriller.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “This spy story displays all of the characteristics of the genre…The plot is timed to the second to kidnap Eichmann…[and] fosters the kind of tension only a well-written thriller can create.”


  • “Bascomb has shortened and changed much of the language of his successful 2009 adult title Hunting Eichmann but kept every bit of the suspense…This is a splendid example of fascinating storytelling blended with significant historical events.”


  • “In this thrilling James Bond–style book, Bascomb includes daring escapes, fake identities, captures, secret rooms constructed within houses, a human-size storage compartment in a caterer’s cart, secret missions, and action normally seen in spy thrillers…While the story reads easily, the content is deep and I would highly recommend it.”
