The Saint of Wolves and Butchers - Alex Grecian
I've read several of this author's Scotland Yard's Murder Squad and thoroughly enjoyed them. However, this book which (I hope) is setting up a new series of a new agency that is set up to find, capture and punish Nazi war criminals.

Rudolph Bormann, now Rudy Goodman, (what a play on words this name change is) was a Nazi doctor and concentration camp administrator prior to illegally entering the U.S. in the 1950's. He has now set up a "cult" that applies a lot of the Nazi principles. This is one helluva despicable man. The things he has been doing since he's been in the U.S. are startling, jaw dropping and out there.

He's recently been discovered by a camp survivor and turned into the foundation that was set up to find these criminals. Travis Roan and his dog, Bear, have been charged with finding his father who had set out to check up on these allegations when he went missing.

There is a heck of a lot of action going on in this book and I was held spellbound. I sped through this book, my anger at this Nazi and his actions ran rampant. A book I thoroughly enjoyed and was, quite frankly, a little sad to see it end. I really like these new characters, Travis and Skottie and hope I do see more of them.

Also, the lightning trick at the end of the book - GENIUS!!
