The House on Garibaldi Street
This book, simply put, is the most exciting, fascinating, engrossing book I have ever read. Impossible to put down, and if so, to stop thinking about it. The most amazing thing is: It really happened; this is no fiction. It is the capture of the nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann by the Mossad chief at the time in Argentina. It reads as a thriller book but it's all true.
From the planning of the coup, so to speak, to the final bringing to Israel in a regular civil airplane(¡!) it is short of amazing. The author really has no difficulty in telling the story, and there is no need in telling anything but what happened and how they captured the man. Every detail in the story is meaningful. The author has no need at all to embellish anything, it just tells itself.
Frankly, fiction will seem pathetic to you after reading this one. And if you are interested in the subject: the hunt for nazi criminals; how nazis who escaped Germany at the end of the war made it in a foreign society and mingled with the locals; or are interested in the minds of this type of persons... or how an operation like this one -ilegally capturing a person in another country and bringing him to court in Israel: the politics, the failed diplomacy, the infrastructure, the detailed planning and secrecy and the execution of the plan... then this one will give you all.
As I said, this is not literature. This is for real. And reality is far more exciting than the imagination in this case.
