Good Assassins: Hunting The Butcher: The interesting case of a justified killing

THREE STARS

This is a podcast about two killers: Yaakov “Mio” Meidad, a highly accomplished operative working for the Israeli national intelligence agency, and Herbert Cukurs, aka “the Butcher of Latvia”, a savage and prolific Holocaust enforcer. But it is the former that takes on the role of chief protagonist — dare I say hero? — in Stephen Talty’s vivid retelling of Mio’s risky mission to exact vengeance on behalf of the Jewish People.
