Before World War II, Norwegian youth Inar Christiansen goes to New York to study the cello at Juilliard. After the war he makes it his personal mission to hunt down and exterminate the mem bers of an SS unit that executed his par ents, along with most of the inhabitants of his hometown. Having traced sever al of the fugitive Nazis and strangled them with cello strings, he joins forces with a Mossad group trying to locate the unit leader, Colonel Hagemann, who may hold the key that will tip the balance of power in the Middle East. Hagemann's former mistress, a Jewish concentration-camp victim, is liberated from a Russian prison and used to bait the trap. The bloody but inevitable showdown comes at a heavily guarded Spanish villa. The book runs out of steam at the halfway point and suc cumbs to the weight of the unlikely plot. Disappointing.
