The Odessa File

Rating
(1 )

811 odessaIn November 1963, shortly after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Peter Miller, a German freelance crime reporter, follows an ambulance to the apartment of Salomon Tauber, a Jewish Holocaust-survivor who has committed suicide. The next day, Miller is given the dead man's diary by a friend in the police.

After reading Tauber's life story and learning that Tauber had been in Riga concentration camp commanded by Eduard Roschmann, "The Butcher of Riga," Miller resolves to search for Roschmann. Miller's attention is especially drawn to one diary passage in which Tauber describes having seen Roschmann in anger fatally shoot a German Army Captain wearing an unusual military decoration matching that of Miller's late father, who had died serving in that area.

Miller's quest reveals a brilliant, ruthless plot to reestablish the worldwide power of SS mass murderers and to carry out Hitler's chilling "Final Solution."
