Overview

The Odessa File by Frederick Forsyth

The suicide of an elderly German Jew explodes into revelation after revelation of a Mafia-like organization called Odessa

"A carefully thought out, meticulously researched, documented... highly suspenseful work of fiction."--Chicago Tribune.

...of a real-life fugitive known as the "Butcher of Riga"

...of a young German journalist tumed obsessed avenger.

"Every bit as exciting as its noted predecessor and even eerie."—Cosmopolitan.

Much more complex than the Jackal... intriguingly fact packed with relentless exporting, a protagonist propelled by an unstoppable force as suicidal as that of a lemming, and a time-factored chase ticking off to an explosive climax."--The Cleveland Press

This book is an excellent source for execitement for anyone who enjoys this type of entertainment. The way that Forsythe mixes fact with fiction to tell the history of post-war Germany is intriguing. I have read this book several times and it only gets better each time.

This story is just too gripping. I don't know how the author does it but i give him all the credit for being able to turn a boring history topic into such a rivetting story. The suspense and surprises will make you read this book over and over again. I have and i simple can't get tired of it....or maybe it because i repeat loads of books?? No seriously this is a lovely book.

I realy liked this book. I did have a little trouble keeping in it when it got to the slow parts, but those were few. I had almost no trouble keeping up with the story/people changes in the middle of the chapters. It kinda made me think when they started to totally describe how the bomb was built and put into his car, that anyone reading this might go out anbd do something like this, but that is not my problem. Another thing I remember is that If Peter miller, and the Jews helping him knew how powerful the Odessa was, they would have known that his car was an immediate eye grasper, and to drive something else. The jewish accomplises may have known about the chance of Miller being followed, but they did not tell him. They may have, and I missed it, but if Miller was as good as the author led him to be, he probably would have known about his car not being very conspicious, and the chance of him being followed.
