1st Hardback ed., 2009. Xxi + 250 pp. D.j., 24 x 15cm. FINE. Reviled Nazi war criminal Dr Albert Heim was infamous for carrying out grotesque, sadistic medical experiments on Jewish prisoners at the Mauthausen concentration camp. Alerted of his imminent arrest in 1962, Heim disappeared. Here, for the first time, is the dramatic true story of how a clandestine organisation operating outside of international law tracked down the ‘Butcher of Mauthausen’ and assassinated him. ‘The Owl’ was created by a Holocaust survivor who became a wealthy oil magnate and dedicated an unlimited budget to eliminating Nazis who had fled justice after World War II. Comprised of Vietnam War veterans and former secret agents, ‘The Owl’ also received support from higher-up in the CIA, the FBI and Israeli intelligence. The author tells his extraordinary account from within the secretive cell of the tireless manhunt to apprehend and execute the wicked fugitive known as ‘Dr Death’.
