Walters details the history of hunting Nazi war criminals from the period immediately after the war (with some painful looks at the crimes themselves) to current times. Unfortunately, the hunt was often frustratingly lackluster. Jonathan Cowley’s voice is strong, his reading energetic, his accent very British. The dark coloring and rough edge of his voice fit the somber material, and his clipped, sometimes abrupt, readings help convey the author’s disgust for the Nazis and scorn for those who cynically employed them, shielded them, or pretended to hunt them. But Cowley’s pronunciation of other languages, mostly German, is inconsistent and at times awkward. It’s usually comprehensible but not always. Still, he gives a vigorous reading of a consistently interesting, if disheartening, book. W.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
