In Hunting Evil Guy Walters dares, as the Chinese say, ‘to touch the tiger’s bottom’. He mounts a full-scale attack on the reputation of Simon Wiesenthal, the world’s most famous Nazi hunter. The book’s main theme, however, is how Nazis escaped from justice, sometimes for many years, sometimes forever. The most famous ones are here, monsters all: Eichmann, Barbie, Mengele and Stangl.
