Description

“[Levin] is the Swiss watchmaker of the suspense novel.” Stephen King

A Nazi hunter uncovers a fugitive SS doctor’s terrifying plot to create a Fourth Reich in The Boys from Brazil, a riveting techno-thriller from the incomparable master of suspense, Ira Levin. 

Veteran Nazi hunter Yakov Liebermann finds himself entangled in a web of unimaginable horror when he is tipped off to a sinister conspiracy hatching in the depths of South America: a plan to establish a new, globe-spanning Fourth Reich. 

Why has Dr. Josef Mengele—Auschwitz’s fiendish “Angel of Death”—tasked a team of former SS men with the slaughter of ninety-four harmless, aging men across the globe? What hidden link binds these men together? What significance could they possibly hold for their pursuers? 

With the clock ticking, and the future of humanity hanging in the balance, can the ailing Liebermann take on a seemingly unstoppable enemy and alter the course of history? 

Adapted into the film starring Gregory Peck and Laurence Olivier, The Boys from Brazil is a gripping, thought-provoking thriller that explores the depths of human malevolence, and the eternal struggle between good and evil.

Praise

“[Levin] is the Swiss watchmaker of the suspense novel.” Stephen King

“Ira Levin’s most inventive plot since Rosemary’s Baby. Extremely clever, consisting of familiar Levin themes—biological engineering, the rebirth of the devil, human automation.” New York Times

“A novel by Ira Levin is like a bag of popcorn: there’s no way to stop once you’ve started. An irresistible novel, with a science fiction twist.” Newsweek

“What scares today is Levin’s premise based on biological engineering: in the 1970s, although scientifically possible, Mengele’s plan belonged firmly in the realm of fiction; now it’s not nearly so far-fetched.” The Guardian (London)

“Horribly credible, chilling, disturbing…A stunner.” Sunday Express (London)

“One of the greatest (if not the greatest) thrillers of all time…An astonishing marvel, a herculean feat of fictional storytelling.” Forbes
