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.

    " If you didn't read it until now, you'll be excused for thinking it's cliched - lots of other books and movies have mined the same themes. This came first. And it's entertaining. But I still found it a bit silly, and I'm not sure it's wearing well. "

    " The first half of a 1-2 Ira Levin/Halloween punch for book club. It's a cracking good read, even if feels dated and kind of ludicrous. A couple of creepy moments. Perfect for the train. "
