Joseph Kanon - The Accomplice (2019)
A heart-pounding and intelligent espionage novel about a Nazi war criminal who was supposed to be dead, the rogue CIA agent on his trail, and the beautiful woman connected to them both.Seventeen years after the fall of the Third Reich, Max Weill has never forgotten the atrocities he saw as a prisoner at Auschwitz - nor the face of Dr Otto Schramm, a camp doctor who worked with Mengele on appalling experiments and who sent Max's family to the gas chambers. As the war came to a close, Schramm was one of the many high-ranking former-Nazi officers who managed to escape Germany for new lives in South America. There, leaders like Argentina's Juan Peron gave them safe harbour and new identities.With his life nearing its end, Max asks his nephew Aaron Wiley - an American CIA desk analyst - to complete the task Max never could: to track down Otto in Argentina, capture him and bring him back to Germany to stand trial.Unable to deny Max, Aaron travels to Buenos Aires and discovers a city where Nazis thrive in plain sight, mingling with Argentine high society. He ingratiates himself with Otto's alluring but wounded daughter, whom he is convinced is hiding her father. Enlisting the help of a German newspaper reporter, an Israeli agent and the obliging CIA station chief in Buenos Aires, Aaron hunts for Otto - a complicated monster, unexpectedly human but still capable of murder if cornered.
