Philip Kerr's Berlin Noir trilogy featuring the tough, fast-talking, noirish detective Bernie Gunther is a publishing phenomenon that continues to win new fans more than fifteen years after its initial publication. Kerr has brought Bernie back in a highly anticipated thriller that will delight fans of the original books and attract new attention to the backlist. It is 1949 and after being forced to serve in the SS in the killing fields of Ukraine Bernie has moved to Munich to reestablish himself as a private investigator. When the beautiful Frau Britta Warzok hires him for an apparently simple job, Bernie's suspicions flare but the money is too good to turn down. Soon, Bernie is on the run, because in a defeated and divided Germany, it's hard to know friends from enemies, the one from the other.
