Publisher's Summary

It's 1954, and Bernie Gunther sails to Florida, where he's arrested, returned to Cuba, and imprisoned. There he meets Castro, and a French intelligence officer, Thibaud. Exhaustively questioned by Thibaud, Bernie is flown to Berlin with a proposition: work for the French or hang for murder. But Bernie's past as a German POW in Russia is about to catch up with him - in a way he could never have foreseen.

This should have been a great book, for me it wasn't indeed I didn't finish it., tedious in my view discribes it best. It doged about different time frames without to much effort in connection, to many characters that played little part in what should have been a plot. For me the only saving grace was the narrator but he couldn't save this book. On the whole a waste of a good credoit

Where is Jeff Harding?

It is an excellent book in the Bernie Gunter series, but what happened to Jeff Harding? His American accent fitted the cynical 'film-noir-ish' character of the books. This narrator does OK, but his accent is too English (though I think he is Canadian).

Monotonous narration.

Paul Hecht should be tried for crimes against Bernie Gunther! His drawl is so monotonous that (when one actually decipher that it is indeed Bernie who is talking), his wise cracks fall flat. A serious crime indeed. surprises me that narrators of this quality attract payment from anyone other than the institute of insomniacs. He has ruined this series for me. I fear I will have to return this book and read it myself instead.

Prefer Jeff Harding to read. He seems more suited to the character.

What three words best describe Paul Hecht’s voice?

Pleasant, Accurate and clear.
