Book - 2007
Rate this:
Athol Visser, or "Ivan the Terrible," is a ruthless torture technician who has maimed and murdered his way around the globe, killing his first victim at 16 and his last at 60, and working in between as a mercenary, drug smuggler, gun runner, and spy. In his own words, Visser takes readers on a chilling journey through his memory bank of horrors, including an account of being involved in one of the most high-profile assassinations of the 1980s, that of the Swedish prime minister Olof Palme. This disturbing story of a man who killed for pleasure and then adopted it as a profession, traces his movement from one deadly right-wing organization to the next, before rising to the highest ranks of the CCB, South Africa's foreign assassination unit. Now ravaged by AIDS, he has taken the telling of his life's story upon himself to find out the reasons behind his unforgivable actions.
