A thrilling book based on an interesting background. 50 years after the war, Jewish holocaust-survivors are enjoying their lives at Miami. Suddenly a number of mysterious suicides and murders are happening. Some survivors believe they are recognizing a man who meant death if he saw them. They believe it's the Shadow man, a Jew collaborating with Nazis during the war. Detectives and survivors try to bring light into this mystery.

When I first started this book I thought it would be something which progressed slowly. But I turned out to be wrong! I wouldn't call it fast paced but once you've started reading, you'll find it's hard to put down. The story-line was easy to follow and it was intresting, which is a very important part. However, I spotted a few mistakes in the spoken German at the beginning, eg. 'Vas'. I am learning German and know it should be spelt 'was'. Don't let this small mistake discourage you from reading such a good book though. Also, you'll love-The Quest von Giorgio Kostantinos, an incredible novel!

Unlike some of the other reviews offered herein, I found this book quite refreshing. It offered a story that moved at a decent pace and offered some unlikely heroes. While this book isn't the best book I've read, it was quite compelling in its storyline. I found it immensely refreshing to find that the protagonists were not your everyday, run-of-the-mill "supermans". If you want to find a story that compels you to read further, yet without "suspending disbelief" too much, then this is the book to read. If you search for "the" book to define suspense fiction, maybe you should look elsewhere, however, if you want to find a diverting story, with nice balance, read this book! I'm going to read more from Katzenbach.

I've always been a fan of Mr. Katzenbach, and so I jumped at the chance to read Shadow Man, and Boy, was I surprised. This gripping thriller is both thoughtful and chilling, as a small group of concentration camp survives are picked off one by one by the title character, a Jew who hunted other Jews for the Nazis in WW2. Only two cops stand in his way, one white and retired, the other young and black. Together they must solve the mystery, before there is no-one left to say, and the killer disappears into the shadows once more. As usual, Katzenbach's vivid descriptions of Miami add flavor to the mix, and this deep look at a dark chapter in Jewish history makes the novel even more compulsive. An original winner.

This is a great book. I have no clue what book the guy that gave this a '2' read, but it wasn't this one. Anyone I know that read this book really loved it. It is fun to read from start to finish. Just a neat story that is a pleasure to read. Not brilliant writing, just great story telling. The thought of a Nazi war criminal back to kill more is mind blowing. If you love thrillers, WWII novels, history, or can relate to the subject, you should read this book.

For some reason, I just couldn't get into this book. I think it was partly the characters in the book who really annoyed me. Then there was the black drug dealer, which struck me as a bit of a typical stereotype (why do all drug dealers have to be black?) and then the retired policeman who first tries to shoot himself in despair and suddenly he's changed his mind, got the gun back on, doing the Dirty Harry routine. The background to the story is intriguing - that within the Gestapo, there was a Jewish Bureau of Investigation, the "Catchers", Jews who were spared their lives if they would hunt down other Jews and send them to the camps. This is all factual stuff, it really happened, but obviously not something that Israel would want to acknowledge. In this book, a catcher who survived the war now goes around killing anyone who saw him in the war and could still identify him fifty years later....the story goes from Miami to Berlin with one black detective, one old retired detective and one Latino prosecutor determined to catch the Catcher...man, let's hear it for equal opportunities!
Overall the book was OK but nothing to write home about. Not one of Katzenbach's best. Hart's War is better.

After reading Just cause that was unbelievable good I had huge expectations from this book. However this book is not as half as good as Just Cause. It starts good and then the story keeps deteriorating and becomes unreliable and unrealistic. That is a shame since the idea is very good and the author has proven that he knows how to write.

A fast paced thriller with enough facts to keep with reality. For anyone who enjoys WWII fiction such as WINTER, THE BERKUT, etc, will appreciate this book
