Description
When his cover is blown, former Berlin bull and unwilling SS officer Bernie Gunther must re-enter a cat-and-mouse game that continues to shadow his life a decade after Germany's defeat in World War 2... The French Riviera, 1956: Bernie's old and dangerous adversary Erich Mielke, deputy head of the East German Stasi, has turned up in Nice—and he's not on holiday. Mielke is calling in a debt and wants Bernie to travel to London to poison a female agent they've both had dealings with. But Bernie isn't keen on assassinating anyone. In an attempt to dodge his Stasi handler—former Kripo comrade Friedrich Korsch—Bernie bolts for the German border. Traveling by night and hiding by day, he has plenty of time to recall the last case he and Korsch worked together... Obersalzberg, Germany, 1939: A low-level bureaucrat has been found dead at Hitler's mountaintop retreat in Bavaria. Bernie and Korsch have one week to find the killer before the leader of the Third Reich arrives to celebrate his fiftieth birthday. Bernie knows it would mean disaster if Hitler discovers a shocking murder has been committed on the terrace of his own home. But Obersalzberg is also home to an elite Nazi community, meaning an even bigger disaster for Bernie if his investigation takes aim at one of the party's higher-ups...1939 and 1956: two different eras about to converge in an explosion Bernie Gunther will never forget.

        Starred review from February 20, 2017
        Edgar-finalist Kerr’s stunning 12th Bernie Gunther novel (after 2016’s The Other Side of Silence) races along on two parallel tracks. In the first, set in 1956, Bernie, who’s been working as a hotel concierge in Cannes, flees France because he bailed out of performing a hit for Stasi chief Erich Mielke, killing a Stasi agent in the process. The hazardous journey takes him by train, bicycle, and foot toward West Germany. In the main narrative, set in April 1939, SS Gen. Reinhard Heydrich, Bernie’s boss, orders him to Berchtesgaden, Hitler’s mountain retreat. A sniper has fatally shot Karl Flex, a civil engineer in Martin Bormann’s employ, on the deck of Hitler’s villa, the Berghof. Bernie has mere days to solve the crime before Hitler returns to Berchtesgaden to celebrate his 50th birthday. Trying to identify Flex’s killer and bring him to justice proves to be the least of Bernie’s worries. Kerr once again brilliantly uses a whodunit to bring to horrifying life the Nazi regime’s corruption and brutality. Author tour. Agent: Caradoc King, A.P. Watt (U.K.).

      • content: Bernie Gunther is a shrewd German detective in prewar Nazi Germany. Narrator John Lee is the personification of Gunther--full of sarcasm, street smarts, and dark wit. When Gunther is forced by the Nazis to investigate the murders of Hitler's right-hand men in Austria, Lee takes listeners on Gunther's tumultuous and treacherous journey, keeping them riveted as he continually bumps heads with a Nazi opposition that is determined to stop him. Lee switches from his own British accent to a German one effortlessly while passionately displaying the brutality of the Nazis. As Gunther interrogates Austrian suspects, Lee effectively captures the citizens' fear of the Nazi war machine. Even though the story jumps from pre- to postwar events, Lee keeps listeners on track through pace and timing. Perfection! B.J.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
