Three men, one in white, transferred from the plane to the limousine, which drove from Congonhas toward the white skyscrapers of central São Paulo. the limousine stopped in front of Sakai, a temple-like Japanese restaurant. The three men came side by side into Sakai’s large red-lacquered foyer. Two of them, in dark suits, were bulky and aggressive-looking, one blond and the other black-haired. The third man, striding between them, was slimmer and older, in white from hat to shoes except for a lemon-yellow necktie.

Ira Levin's chilling tale about a Nazi-hunter's pursuit of Josef Mengele makes interesting reading in the light of genetic advances, writes Sophia Martelli. Published in 1976, The Boys from Brazil opens, like all good thrillers, with a sinister plot: six men are instructed by a white-suited, evil kingpin to kill 94 men across the world on certain dates, all of whom are civil servants around the age of 65. It seems a strange target demographic, but then we discover that the operation's guiding hand belongs to Dr Josef Mengele, the German SS officer and physician who earned the epithet "Angel of Death" from his gruesome medical experiments in Auschwitz.

Comments to eBook The Boys from Brazil
Gigafish
This is a terrific novel and should be required reading for all aspiring thriller writers. Levin demonstrates that you don't need a hunky ex-Navy SEAL, graphic scenes of torture or pages of mind numbing forensic detail to tell an exciting story where the fate of the world hangs in the balance. The author's protagonist is 62 year old Yakov Liebermann, who has spent his career tracking down ex-Nazis who escaped at the end of World War II. But by the 1970s (when Levin wrote the novel) world wide interest in finding old Nazis is fading and Liebermann's organization has hit on tough times.

Then he gets a call that is cut short when the caller is murdered. But before he is killed the man alerts Liebermann to a new Nazi conspiracy that threatens the fate of humankind. What follows is a roller coaster of exciting, suspenseful scenes, cutting edge technology and enough plot twists to satisfy any thriller reader. Ira Levin only wrote seven novels in his lifetime, including ROSEMARY'S BABY and THE STEPFORD WIVES, but he is deservedly recognized as one of the real shining stars in the galaxy of American thriller writers and I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a classic work of the genre.

It’s Brazil, 1974 and this South American country is still a haven for Nazis hiding from justice from their despicable war crimes. A young American journalist has been tracking the suspicious activities of several high-ranking Nazis and arranges to eavesdrop on a secret meeting, a meeting organized by Dr. Josef Mengele the man who ran Auschwitz, the man known as the “Angel of Death”.
Dr. Mengele unleashes a master plan that, in his warped mind, is the hope and destiny of the Aryan race. The young man manages to record part of that meeting and contacts Yakov Liebermann, the famous Nazi hunter, inspired mostly by Simon Wiesenthal. The young man soon disappears leaving Liebermann to find the answer to the question: why must 94 men, all over the world, have to die, all close to sixty-five years old, and on or near certain dates in the next two and a half years?
The reader is left wondering, just like Lieberman, why must 94 mid-level civil servants die? Preferring to work alone, Lieberman begins to ask questions and through his investigations discovers that a number of men have already died… accidently and these men all had sons all with a remarkable likeness.
The concept of mono-nuclear reproduction is introduced, motivating the reader to do their own inquiry and understanding of the science; I know I was. The concept of mono-nuclear reproduction, i.e. “cloning” raises another question. From which donor would Mengele want to scientifically reproduce 94 black haired, blue eyed boys all with the same genetic inheritance? Given the period in our history and the characters involved, the answer becomes fearfully unthinkable, but quite clear. But Mengele also understands that science alone will not work. To maximize the intent of the science and his ultimate goal, domestic and cultural influences must also be duplicated.
When Lieberman’s efforts are being noticed on the international stage, Nazi leadership in Brazil calls back Mengele’s assassins. Mengele, the evil psychopath, decides to strike out on his own to complete his twisted plan. And Lieberman must stop the killings and stop Mengele. They’re both on a collision course.
When this situation reaches its rightful conclusion, the reader is left with a final question: what will happen to the boys?
“The Boys from Brazil” is a fine novel with a despicably ingenuous plot. The book brilliantly spins a fiction from one of the darkest periods in our history. It is clearly written and thought provoking causing the reader to ask: could it have been accomplished, and are the boys now men?
I highly recommend “The Boys from Brazil”.

Ira Levin wrote this book in the 1970s when Josef Mengale was still a fugitive from justice, so the story is no more than an author's fantasy of how the villain might ultimately be caught and killed. It was certainly possible at that time. In reality, Mengele died in 1979 as a fugitive--he was never arrested--by drowning in the ocean, possibly from a heart attack while swimming. His remains were later identified by DNA samples as Mengele and further corroborated by his son.

The hero, Libermann, shows us at the end of the book that there is more to cloning of a human being than merely reproducing a body and a mind from exact chromosomes. Even in identical twins, who have the exact genetic material and environmental situations, when they mature and have control over their lives, often develop and express different tendencies, qualities, and ambitions, making them only apparently alike. Therefore Mengale's belief that a Hitler could be created by manipulating and duplicating the mind/body genes is pure non-science. He also forgot to factor in the principle of past-life karma and its present-life reactions, which impact our lives, cause us to have varied experiences and and greatly determine our choices and differences.

The other critics have nicely described the plot and its development, which I agree with, so I won't bore you with repetition of it. What I especially liked was the way the book was plotted--very, very carefully--the believable way the characters and the story were handled, and the ever-increasing suspense that made the book un-putdownable. Levin is truly a master of "milking" suspense--intensifying it page after page by arousing in the reader the "what-is-going-to-happen?" symptom. Also, he uses familiar but well-chosen words to spin his sentences and paragraphs, keeping the prose clear so that you can understand the story's focus and never feel bewildered, which is damnable in suspense writing.

Any writer who wants to learn how to develop suspense in his writing should read this book as a primer. I personally thought the book was far better written than the movie for this reason alone. The movie, though acted and directed well by excellent talents , often moved too fast, leaving out important material that explained many of the characters' actions. For this reason, I found myself often asking, "Why is this or that happening?"--it just wasn't too clear. Nonetheless, I'd still recommend seeing the movie, for it is far superior to most suspense thrillers, especially the later scenes with the dogs that gave the movie a scary, violent edge, a payoff that the viewer might be hoping to see .
Fenius
There's plenty of mystery and suspense in this tale of escaped Nazis and a devilish plan to revive the Third Reich. My only criticism is that the writing sometimes bogs down to excessive, unnecessary detail e.g. the dinner in the beginning of the novel where the reader is overwhelmed with what seems like a dozen or more characters in short order. But a great story.
