KIRKUS REVIEW

Rosemary's baby was bad enough; just think of 94 babies cloned from Hitler's cells by genetic molecular reproduction--the evil conception(s) of a man called Mengele who once ran Auschwitz and invented this way to summon up a Fourth Reich. In the last fourteen years these infants have been reared in all parts of the world by nondescript civil servants who are now about to reach the age of 65. But the plan has been taped and passed on to an old Nazi headhunter, Jakov Liebermann, who realizes the significance of what the Jewish establishment won't touch even after a number of civil servants have been eliminated. This won't endure in the permanent domain along with Rosemary's Baby or A Kiss Before Dying, but it is the season's first mind-and-eye-stopping entertainment.
