Shadow Without A Name by Ignacio Padilla
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A novel of imposture and identity, where no one is who he claims to be and destinies hang on a game of chess. 1943: General Thadeus Dreyer, hero of WW1, is in charge of the Amphitryon Project, training doubles to stand in for leading Nazis at dangerous public events. When the Project falls out of favour, he and the doubles disappear. 1960: Adolf Eichmann, a master chess player, is arrested in Buenos Aires, living under an assumed name. One of the few escaped Nazis to be recaptured, he is extradited to Israel and hanged. Years later, an old Polish Count seems to know the truth of his identity. Who are these men? In a story worthy of the Latin-American masters, Ignacio Padilla has written a gripping parable of our century of chaos: where we hurtled towards an uncertain destination; where the individual will was swamped by the cult of personality and where the fate of millions was determined by moves on a board.
