During a sweltering heat wave in the summer of 1938, the German people anxiously await the outcome of the Munich conference, wondering whether the Fuhrer will plunge Europe into another war. Meanwhile, private investigator Bernie Gunther is hired by a rich widow to find out who has been blackmailing her, as well as by the Berlin criminal police to track down a serial killer. Temporarily promoted to the rank of Kommissar, Gunther sets out to solve the dual mysteries amid the tensions of pre-war. Hard-hitting, fast-paced and richly detailed, Philip Kerr's second Bernie Gunther novel is nothing short of spell-binding.More
