Publisher Description

This Edgar® Award-nominated novel in Philip Kerr’s New York Times bestselling Bernie Gunther series reveals the cynical, hard-boiled detective’s harrowing history as an unwilling SS officer in World War 2. 

During his eleven years working homicide in Berlin's Kripo, Bernie Gunther learned a thing or two about evil. Then he set himself up as a private detective—until 1940 when Heydrich dragooned him into the SS's field gray uniform and the bloodbath that was the Eastern Front. Spanning twenty-five tumultuous years, Field Gray strides across the killing fields of Europe, landing Bernie in a divided Germany at the height of the Cold War—revealing a treacherous world where the ends justify the means and no one can be trusted...

Read first

If you enjoy historical thrillers, read Field Gray first then the rest of the series. although written last, so far, it provides an overview. the rest of the stories are more specific time slices. There is obviously one more adventure to come before Herr Gunther can retire.

Not as good as before

This book is somewhat entertaining, bit not as god as Kerr's previous books. The gears of the plot are all too obvious.
