Too long, too much exposition bogs this Gunther novel down. Too many coincidences, too much of Superman Bernie's exploits stretch reality to the broken, not breaking, point. Good historical info to be had, but somewhat dry and even boring. The ending is just plain nuts! For diehard fans only. Narration is wonderful, as always.

Don't start with Field Gray, save it for after you have listened to the preceding volumes in the "Bernie Gunther" detective series. Kerr's creation is an engaging, wryly comic, and morally challenging character. Paul Hecht's reading deeply and unobtrusively captures the spirit of Gunther, as well as the many adversaries Kerr pits against him in this expansive, complex, but eminently clear political detective story, steeped in a history no one should have the pleasure of forgetting about. Field Gray is as much a warning as it is a retelling about the depths of inhumanity in which humanity can so easily lose itself.
