Bernie Gunther returns in the thirteenth book in the Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling series, perfect for fans of John le Carre and Robert Harris.

'One of the greatest anti-heroes ever written' LEE CHILD

'Kerr leads us through the facts of history and the vagaries of human nature' TOM HANKS

'One of the greatest master story-tellers in English' ALAN FURST

1957, Munich. Bernie Gunther's latest move in a string of varied careers sees him working for an insurance company. It makes a kind of sense: both cops and insurance companies have a vested interest in figuring out when people are lying to them, and Bernie has a lifetime of experience to call on.

Sent to Athens to investigate a claim from a fellow German for a sunken ship, Bernie takes an instant dislike to the claimant. When he discovers the ship in question once belonged to a Greek Jew deported to Auschwitz, he is convinced the sinking was no accident but an act of vengeance.

And so Bernie is once again drawn inexorably back to the dark history of the Second World War, and the deportation of the Jews of Salonika - now Thessaloniki. As Europe prepares to move on to a more united future with Germany as a partner rather than an enemy, at least one person in Greece is ready neither to forgive nor forget. And, deep down, Bernie thinks they may have a point.

Review:

One of the most memorable and original characters in contemporary popular fiction . . . confirms what Kerr's fans have long know: that he has few, if any, rivals to match him among modern thriller writers (Sunday Times)

A vintage draught as themes of redemption are grippingly explored (Guardian)

Bernie Gunther is a fictional investigator without parallel . . . Greeks Bearing Gifts shows, unequivocally, what a wonderful writer [Philip Kerr] was (The Times)

Tremendously entertaining ... but sometimes able to make your stomach lurch with sudden insight (Daily Telegraph)

There could be no more fitting testimonial to [Kerr's] exceptional power as a storyteller than this superb evocation of Munich in 1957 ... Gunther unveils the vagaries of human nature with a gimlet eye (Daily Mail)

[Bernie Gunther's] greatest trait may be his power to endure. He is a softly spoken, shambling testifier to the human power of resilience. He is also bitterly, darkly funny (Sunday Herald)

Leading us through the past and the changes leading to a new Europe, Kerr as ever delivers another masterpiece (Weekend Sport)
