9780099552819: The Odessa File

[Audiobook CASSETTE Library Edition in vinyl case.]

[Read by Frederick Davidson]

Frederick Forsyth's spellbinding novels may be the natural outgrowth of an adventuresome career in international investigative journalism. Written in Austria and Germany during the fall of 1971, The Odessa File is based on its author's life experiences as a Reuters man reporting from London, Paris, and East Berlin in the early 1960s.

The ''Odessa'' of this title is an acronym for the secret organization which has protected the identities and advanced the destinies of former members of Hitler's dreaded SS since shortly before the end of World War II. One of its rare major defeats came in the spring of 1964, when a packet of dossiers arrived anonymously at the Ministry of Justice in Bonn. How and why a once carefree young German freelance journalist came to send the packet is told in this brilliant new extrapolation from reality into terror.

From the Publisher:

"Much more complex than the Jackal... intriguingly fact packed with relentless exporting, a protagonist propelled by an unstoppable force as suicidal as that of a lemming, and a time-factored chase ticking off to an explosive climax."--The Cleveland Press.

The suicide of an elderly German Jew explodes into revelation after revelation: of a Mafia-like organization called Odessa.

"A carefully thought out, meticulously researched, documented... highly suspenseful work of fiction."--Chicago Tribune.

...of a real-life fugitive known as the "Butcher of Riga"

...of a young German journalist turned obsessed avenger.

"Every bit as exciting as its noted predecessor and even eerie."--Cosmopolitan.

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

"A highly superior combination of real-life facts and suspense fiction."--Publisher's Weekly
