Publisher Description

Bernie Gunther's sixth outing delivers all the hard-boiled, fast-paced and quick-witted action we expect of him. Berlin is preparing to host the 1936 Olympics, and Jews are being expelled from all German sporting organisations.

Bernie Gunther, forced to resign as a homicide detective with Berlin's Criminal Police, is now house detective at the famous Adlon Hotel. Two bodies are found - a businessman and a Jewish boxer, and Bernie is drawn into the lives of various hotel guests. One, beautiful left-wing journalist, is intent on persuading America to boycott the Olympiad. The other, a Chicago gangster, wants to use the Olympics to enrich himself and the Chicago mob.

As events unfold, Bernie uncovers a vast network of corruption and racketeering, led by those who want a slice of the fortune the Nazis are spending to showcase Germany to the world.

Lovejok2 ,

interesting perspective and gripping to boot!

This is my first Philip Kerr novel, having been recommended to me by a good friend - definitely worth a read and shines a light on a controversial period of history, not often shown from the perspective of those caught in Country of growing turmoil and corruption. Stick with the time-jump it adds to the suspense and takes you on an unexpected adventure…!
