Publisher's Summary

Posing as an escaping Nazi war criminal, Bernie Gunther, Berlin's hardest-boiled private eye, arrives in Buenos Aires. When he reveals his real identity to the local chief of police, he discovers that his reputation as a detective goes before him. A young girl has been murdered in peculiarly gruesome circumstances that strongly resemble Bernie's final case as a homicide detective. Circumstances lead the chief of police to suppose that the murderer may be one of several thousand ex-Nazis who have fetched up in Argentina since 1945. Reluctantly, Gunther agrees to help find the murderer, and discovers much more than he, or they, bargained for.


What the Critics Say

"I love Bernie Gunther. If he was an accountant in Pinner and not an ex-cop-turned-private-investigator mixed up in the dangerous Nazi subculture of 1930s Berlin, falling foul of the Gestapo, being driven to secret meetings with Goering, I'd probably still love him." (Sue Arnold, Guardian)
"Kerr is an unlikely genius." (Daily Mirror)
"Kerr brilliantly evokes the edgy atmosphere of the post-war period." (Sunday Times)

Excellent Evocation of Peron's Argentina. Gunther rides again!

The brilliant interpretation we have come to expect; flawless characterisation and fluid and fluent reading. Gunther stumbles on to the truth with chaos and danger all around him. A welcome change of scene with fascist Argentina and the many Nazi war criminals in hiding there. Vintage Kerr and brilliant Jeff Harding!
