Following the fall of the Third Reich, Doktor Josef Mengele, Hitlerís notorious ĎAngel of Deathí, fled to South America.
For three decades, despite the determined efforts of governments and Nazi hunters alike, he remained at large amidst a welter of rumour, false-sightings, and misinformation. Mengele eventually drowned in 1979, whilst swimming off the coast of Bertioga in Brazil, due to a supposed heart attack.
Now at last, after painstaking research, award-winning author Ian Watson reveals what really happened during Mengeleís missing decades; an episode in which Herr Doktor encounters a monster that even he had believed to be mere fiction. A series of events that would eventually lead to his death...
Ian Watson worked for 10 months with Stanley Kubrick, writing the screen story to AI: Artificial Intelligence which was subsequently filmed by Steven Spielberg, based on Ianís screenplay. He was the author of the very first novels in the Warhammer 40K universe, and has won multiple awards for his ground-breaking novels.
