Abstract:

The "perfectly plotted" (Publishers weekly) new thriller from bestselling author Philip Kerr. Germany, 1949: Amid the chaos of defeat, it's a place of dirty deals, rampant greed, fleeing Nazis, and all manner of intrigue and deceit. For Bernie Gunther, Berlin has become too dangerous, and he now works as a private detective in Munich. Business is slow when a woman hires him to investigate her husband's disappearance ... She doesn't want him back, she merely wants confirmation that he is dead. It's a simple job, but in postwar Germany, nothing is simple, and nothing is what it appears to be. Accepting the case, Bernie takes on far more than he'd bargained for, and soon, he is on the run, facing enemies from every side. "Kerr's stylish noir writing makes every page a joy to read ("The little mouth tightened into a smile that was all lips and no teeth, like a newly stitched scar").
