Publisher Description

In this riveting historical mystery novel from New York Times bestselling author Philip Kerr, Bernie Gunther trails a serial killer in 1950’s Buenos Aires... 

Buenos Aires, 1950. After being falsely accused of war crimes, Bernie Gunther—like the Nazis he has always despised—has been offered a new life and a clean passport by the Perón government. But the tough, fast-talking ex-Berlin detective doesn’t have the luxury of laying low. The local police pressure Bernie into taking on a case in which a girl has turned up gruesomely mutilated. What’s more, her murder just might be linked to a missing German banker’s daughter and a long-unsolved case Bernie worked back in Berlin before the war. After all, the scum of the earth has been washing up on Argentina’s shores—state-licensed murderers and torturers—so why couldn’t a serial killer be among them?

Implausable

Not his best but his worst Remains superior to others writing in his genre. I really enjoyed it.

Kerr is a great writer!

As I work my way through the Gunther novels, and this may not be the best, I remain absolutely sure of one thing: Phillip Kerr is an extraordinary talent. Most of the other so-called leading authors in the "Detective" genre or any fiction category cannot hold a candle to his skill.
By comparison, they are an embarrassment to the art.
