    By Philip Kerr

    From New York Times–bestselling writer Philip Kerr, the a lot expected go back of Bernie Gunther in a chain hailed by way of The day-by-day Beast as “the most sensible crime novels round today.”

    Once I’d been a very good detective in Kripo, yet that used to be some time in the past, earlier than the criminals wore clever grey uniforms and approximately every body locked up was once innocent.” Being a Berlin cop in 1942 was once a bit like placing down mousetraps in a cage packed with tigers.


    The warfare is over. Bernie Gunther, our sardonic former Berlin murder detective and unwilling SS officer, is now residing at the French Riviera. it's 1956 and Bernie is the go-to man on the Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, the fellow you switch to for traveling information or if you would like a fourth for bridge. because it occurs, an area author wishes simply that, anyone to fill the fourth seat in a customary video game that's the ordinary night diversion on the Villa Mauresque. not only any author. maybe the richest and most renowned dwelling author on the earth: W. Somerset Maugham. And it seems it isn't only a bridge accomplice that he wishes; it’s a few specialist suggestion. Maugham is being blackmailed—perhaps due to his unorthodox way of life. or maybe due to anything in his previous, simply because as soon as upon a time, Maugham labored for the British mystery carrier, and the folk now blackmailing him are spies.

    As Gunther fanatics be aware of, all roads lead again to the viper’s nest that was once Hitler’s 3rd Reich and to the killing fields that unfold like a sickness throughout Europe. Even in 1956, peace has now not come to the continent: now the Soviets have the H-bomb and spies from each significant energy be happy to make all of Europe their own playground.
