As the Irish people prepare to welcome President John F. Kennedy to the land of his ancestors, a German national is murdered in a seaside guesthouse. Lieutenant Albert Ryan, Directorate of Intelligence, is ordered to investigate the third such crime within a few days. The Minister for Justice wants the killing to end lest a shameful secret be exposed: the dead men were all Nazis granted asylum by Ireland in the years following World War II. And when Ryan closes in on the killers, his loyalty is torn between country and conscience.

Though a fictionalized account, an interesting contribution to the literature on post WWII ratlines of major Nazi, especially in its exposure of Irish complicity, and the role of the catholic Church

Most enjoyable to read. It was hard to put down. It takes place in Ireland in 1962and involves nazis who escaped persecution and the man who controls the looted billions which keeps them in extravagance. Murder, torture and betrayal are the themes.
