From the author of the internationally acclaimed, award-winning East West Street comes a tale of Nazi lives, mass murder, love, Cold War espionage, a mysterious death in the Vatican, and "the Ratline"—the Nazi escape route to Perón''s Argentina.

Baron Otto von Wächter was a Viennese lawyer, husband, and father. He was also a senior SS officer, a colleague of Heinrich Himmler, and the creator and overseer of the Kraków ghetto. For the murder of more than a hundred thousand Poles and Jews, he was indicted as a war criminal, and spent four years on the run, only to reach a mysterious end. With fascinating detail, Philippe Sands pieces together Wächter’s extraordinary, shocking story. Given a new identity and life via “the Ratline” to Perón’s Argentina, the escape route taken by Eichmann, Mengele, and thousands of other Nazis, Wächter and his escape plan were cut short by his mysterious, shocking death in Rome. In the midst of the burgeoning Cold War, was he being recruited by the Americans or by the Soviets—or perhaps both? Or was he poisoned by one side or the other, as his son believes—or by both? An extraordinary and riveting work of history, told up close through access to a unique trove of family correspondence between Wächter and his wife, The Ratline is part historical detective story, part love story, part family memoir, and part Cold War espionage thriller.
PHILIPPE SANDS is an international lawyer and, since 2018, the president of English PEN. He is a frequent commentator on CNN and the BBC World Service. In 2003 he was appointed a Queen''s Counsel. He lives in London.
