    I started to read this book and realized that it wasn't my kind of reading. Let my son read it, and he really liked it.

    Starting with the historical fact that many Nazi war criminals escaped after World War II with fortunes stolen from their victims and became ensconced in various countries like Franco’s Spain, Peron’s Argentina and anti-British Ireland, Stuart Neville has created a first-rate mystery. The protagonist is a Lieutenant in the Directorate of Intelligence, Albert Ryan, who lied about his age to enlist in the British army and fought in the European theater, Egypt and Korea before returning home.

    Ryan is asked at the behest of the Minister of Justice to investigate the murder of a German national, weeks before a pending visit by Pres. John F. Kennedy because he fears the publicity might force cancellation of the trip. The authorities are desirous of hiding the fact that the country is providing sanctuary to a bunch of Nazis. Ryan’s efforts become more complicated than a mere murder investigation, and thereby hangs one helluva tale.

    The title refers to escape routes by which Nazis were able to travel, avoiding detection, and the methods used to finance their travels to and establishment in new locations. While based on historical fact, more important is the plot, which twists and turns in wholly unexpected directions. And the character study of Ryan is deep and penetrating. Another top-notch novel from this author, and highly recommended.

    Another great book from Stuart Neville. I fell in love with the Ghosts of Belfast and never looked back. I love the mystery and I have learned a lot about the history of the time period as well. I will be looking for other books now that deal with that time because I would like to learn more. Give this author a chance to pull you into his world - you will not be sorry! Not for the faint of heart.
