Berlin detective Bernie Gunther bows out at last in the 14th and final book of the Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling series. With an introduction by Ian Rankin.

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

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

Berlin, 1928, the height of the Weimar Republic. Bernie is a young detective working in Vice when he asked to investigate the Silesian Station killings: four prostitutes murdered in as many weeks, and in the same gruesome manner.
Bernie hardly has time to acquaint himself with the case files before another murder occurs. Until now, no one has shown much interest in these victims - there are plenty in Berlin who'd like the streets washed clean of such degenerates. But this time the girl's father runs Berlin's foremost criminal ring, and he's prepared to go to extreme lengths to find his daughter's killer.
It seems that someone is determined to rid Berlin of anyone less than perfect. The voice of Nazism is becoming a roar that threatens to drown out all others. But not Bernie Gunther's...

Review:

Meticulous research, the hallmark of Kerr's novels, is ever present as he shows the Weimar Republic weakening under the growing pressure of the Nazi party. Kerr and Gunther will be much missed - The Times A fitting swan song for this intelligent and always thought-provoking series. At its heart is a melancholy irony. Chaotic and dangerous though the Weimar capital is, we know, as Bernie doesn't, that far worse if in store for Berlin - Spectator Metropolis, the last book Kerr finished, returns his memorable antihero to his early days as a policeman in Weimar ... told in the unique voice that Kerr's admirers will happily recognize - Sunday Times A gritty, graphic picture of a city on the edge of a nervous breakdown. But hard-as-knuckledusters Bernie, a truly great crime fiction character, goes out on a high - Sun Bernie Gunther - sly, subversive, sardonic and occasionally hilarious - is one of the greatest anti-heroes ever written, and as always he lights up this tough and unflinching novel. We're in good hands here - Lee Child Philip Kerr once more shows himself one of the greatest master storytellers in English. The narrative is swift and adept, and so well grounded in the history and custom of the period that the reader is totally immersed - Alan Furst Once again Kerr leads us through the facts of history and the vagaries of human nature - Tom Hanks
