Publisher's Summary

Here's 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." ( London Evening Standard)

a great german whodunnit, cont'd

Continuing off from where March Violets trails away from a few years before, Philip Kerr continues to exploit Bernie Gunther's sardonic wit, his continued cynicism of most things bureaucratic, and his dislike all things criminal. A great listen - really liking John Lee's version of Gunther - a no holds barred reading here.

Philip Kerr and John Lee- a great team!

As with every other Philip Kerr book I've read, I enjoyed it from beginning to end. He has become one of my favourite writers and the experience is enhanced by John Lee's superb narration. I believe John Lee is simply the best audiobook narrator in the world. He makes a great book even better.
