The Final Procedure by Stan Pottinger
"He heard a soft voice, a little girl's voice, singing quietly in the operating room."
"HE'S TRAINED IN THE SCIENCE OF EVIL...
Christmas Eve in Auschwitz, 1944. Hitler's Angel of Death, Dr. Joseph Mengele, and his brilliant young protégé, Adalwolf, are on the verge of a nightmarish medical discovery when the war brings it all to an end. But Mengele's insane visions for the Third Reich live on.
SHE'S SKILLED IN THE ART OF THE HUNT...
More than half a century later, FBI agent Melissa Gale's mission is to bring Adalwolf to justice before it's too late. He's emerged from the shadows of history to resurrect a biological terror and unleash it on the world. But tracking him is easier than Melissa imagined. Because for years, Adalwolf has been tracking her.
BUT WHICH ONE IS THE PREY?
Melissa and her unborn child have something Adalwolf needs--a genetic history that holds the key to his success. As a dance of death is engaged between hunter and hunted, Melissa realizes how far the last Nazi will go to fulfill his dark dreams for his Ultimate Solution--and just how far she is prepared to go to stop him..." -- from the back cover
I liked this thriller about the past coming back to life. I especially liked Melissa gradually learning who Adalwolf is and how strong she could be.
