About this product
- DescriptionFrom New York Times bestselling author Philip Kerr, the much anticipated return of Bernie Gunther in a series hailed by The Daily Beast as the best crime vels around today. Once I d been a good detective in Kripo, but that was a while ago, before the criminals wore smart gray uniforms and nearly everyone locked up was incent. Being a Berlin cop in 1942 was a little like putting down mousetraps in a cage full of tigers. The war is over. Bernie Gunther, our sardonic former Berlin homicide detective and unwilling SS officer, is w living on the French Riviera. It is 1956 and Bernie is the go-to guy at the Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, the man you turn to for touring tips or if you need a fourth for bridge. As it happens, a local writer needs just that, someone to fill the fourth seat in a regular game that is the usual evening diversion at the Villa Mauresque. Not just any writer. Perhaps the richest and most famous living writer in the world: W. Somerset Maugham. And it turns out it is t just a bridge partner that he needs; it s some professional advice. Maugham is being blackmailed perhaps because of his urthodox lifestyle. Or perhaps because of something in his past, because once upon a time, Maugham worked for the British secret service, and the people w blackmailing him are spies. As Gunther fans kw, all roads lead back to the viper s nest that was Hitler s Third Reich and to the killing fields that spread like a disease across Europe. Even in 1956, peace has t come to the continent: w the Soviets have the H-bomb and spies from every major power feel free to make all of Europe their personal playground.
