Horst Gerhard Schneider was once a young, naive member of the SS. An obedient and valued novice, Schneider soon found himself promoted and playing chauffeur to Reinhard Heydrich, one of the most infamous Nazi leaders to be found in the pages of history. Now in his 80s, Schneider is still at large, living in anonymous poverty in a North American city. When the desecration of a synagogue rocks his community, the elderly war criminal suspects that a troubled teenaged neighbor may be responsible. Refusing to be silently complicit for a second time, Schneider must confront both the demons of his own youth and the anti-Semitism that still thrives half a century later and half a world away.
