Description
A supremely disturbing thriller set in the ruins of the Third Reich by an internationally acclaimed master of historical suspense. Bernie Gunther had his first brush with evil as a policeman in 1930s Berlin and came to know it intimately as a private eye under the Nazis, when each case drew him deeper into the enormities of the regime. Now the war is over and Gunther's in Vienna, trying to clear an old friend of the murder of an American officer. Amid decaying imperial splendor he traces concentric circles of depravity that lead him to a former head of the Gestapo. Gripping, frightening, and pungently atmospheric, A GERMAN REQUIEM demonstrates Philip Kerr's power to take his listeners hostage."Echoes of Raymond Chandler but better on his vivid and well-researched detail than the master." –Evening Standard (London)"Kerr has the talent to . . . take you places you have never been."–The Washington Post Book WorldFrom the Compact Disc edition.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: First published in 1991, this title concludes Philip Kerr's masterful Berlin Noir trilogy. (THE ONE FROM THE OTHER, 2006, added a fourth to the series.) P.I. Bernie Gunther takes a case that allows him to leave his personal miseries behind in war-torn Berlin and to head to Vienna in order to prove the innocence of a black marketeer. John Lee uses his handsome voice to excellent advantage in this gritty story of post-war Germany, where nothing is as it seems, no one is innocent, and survival is primary. Lee expertly delivers Kerr's historically driven details, including the complexities of U.S. complicity in postwar deals with former enemies and the ironic tangles of morality and war. Lee turns in another inspired performance with this dark, disturbing book. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
