*
Seventeen years after the fall of the Third Reich.
Max Weill has never forgotten the face of Otto Schramm, a doctor who worked with Mengele on appalling experiments and who sent Max’s family to the gas chambers.

A Nazi war criminal who is supposed to be dead.
When Schramm escaped to South America after the war, Max swore to one day bring him back to Germany to stand trial. With his life now nearing its end, he asks his nephew Aaron Wiley – a CIA desk analyst – to capture the doctor.

And the rogue CIA agent on his trail.
In Buenos Aires, and unable to distinguish allies from enemies, Aaron must test the boundaries of his own personal morality and ultimately decide: how far is he prepared to go to render justice?

Praise for Joseph Kanon

Joseph Kanon owns this corner of the literary landscape and it’s a joy to see him reassert his title with such emphatic authorityLee Child

‘Clever, devious and morally complex’Sunday Times

Sensational! No one writes period fiction with the same style and suspense – not to mention substance – as Joseph Kanon’ Scott Turow

‘Kanon is fast approaching the complexity and relevance not just of le Carre and Greene but even of OrwellNew York Times

‘The perfect combination of intrigue and accurate history brought to life’ Alan Furst

‘Joseph Kanon continues to demonstrate that he is up there with the very best…of spy thriller writers…Kanon writes beautifully, superbly…he is the master of the shadows of the eraThe Times

‘The critical stock of Joseph Kanon is high, and Defectors will add further lustre to his reputation…There are pleasing echoes here of the “entertainments” of Graham Greene Guardian
