About the Book

Felix escapes Hitler's annexation of Austria , comes to America and becomes a chemist. Years of inhaling noxious fumes in the laboratory damage his lungs.  The doctor to whom he is referred emigrated to America from Germany after World War II, graduates from med school and joins an elderly physician's practice. Felix becomes one of his patients.

Doctor and patient gradually form a somewhat reluctant, at times adversarial relationship, during the course of which  Felix learns that the man who is now trying to cure him from a potentially fatal illness once belonged to the Nazi party whose clutches Felix escaped and whose leader (Hitler) had eliminated his elderly parents.

About the Author

The author is a semi-retired engineer/CPA. He now divides his time between Pittsburgh and Boca Raton/Highland Beach. He was an avid tennis player until a hip replacement made him hang up his racket. He found a new passion - writing novels. His mystery novels, GRETA, A CURIOUS TWIST OF FATE, and LEGAL GAMBLE, published in the last four years, intertwined sex and violence.

His latest, FELIX and the NAZI, is a character study of two men, one a Jew and one a Nazi, both profoundly molded by their experiences before, during and after World War II.
