Publisher's Summary

Berlin, 1934. The Nazis have been in power for just 18 months, but already Germany has seen some unpleasant changes.
Forced to resign as a homicide detective, Bernie is now house detective at the famous Adlon Hotel. The discovery of two bodies involves Bernie in the lives of two hotel guests. One is a beautiful journalist intent on persuading America to boycott the Berlin Olympiad; the other is a German-Jewish gangster who plans to use the Olympics to enrich himself.
As events unfold, Bernie uncovers a vast labour and construction racket designed to take advantage of the huge sums the Nazis are prepared to spend to showcase the new Germany to the world.

Lost interest

Disappointing after the previous novels. The German half of the book was excellent and provided some useful background to the series as a whole. However, the Cuba switch was full of too many predictable features.

XXXXX

Another episode, or rather pair of episodes, in the Bernie Gunther saga. This time Bernie is house detective at the Adlon and the story combines corruption around the building of the 1936 Olympics with the heightened tensions created by the Nazis in pre-war Berlin. Things don?t go well for Bernie and we leap-frog to 50?s pre-Castro Cuba, another evocative time and place, where Bernie has washed-up after the war (carrying on from previous books). Gunther is asked to investigate another murder, at the request of the Mob and things are not all as they seem. This nicely rounds out Kerr?s series and is brilliantly narrated by Jeff Harding.
