The Lady from Zagreb

A Bernie Gunther Novel

A Bernie Gunther Novel 10

In this Edgar® Award-nominated novel in Philip Kerr's New York Times bestselling series, former detective and unwilling SS officer Bernie Gunther is on the hunt for a beautiful femme fatale...

Berlin, 1942. Three players take the stage. The first, a gorgeous actress-the rising star of a giant German film company controlled by the Propaganda Ministry. The second, the very clever, very dangerous Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels-a close confidant of Hitler, ambitious schemer, and flagrant libertine. Finally, there's Bernie Gunther-a former Berlin homicide bull now forced to run errands at the Propaganda Minister's command.

When Goebbels tasks Bernie with finding the woman the press have dubbed "the German Garbo," his errand takes him from Zurich to Zagreb to the killing fields of Croatia. It is there that Bernie finds himself in a world of mindless brutality where everyone has a hidden agenda-perfect territory for a true cynic whose instinct is to trust no one.
Rezension
Praise for Philip Kerr and the Bernie Gunther Novels

"A brilliantly innovative thriller writer."-Salman Rushdie

"Philip Kerr is the only bona fide heir to Raymond Chandler."-Salon.com

"In terms of narrative, plot, pace and characterization, Kerr's in a league with John le Carré."-The Washington Post

"Every time we're afraid we've seen the last of Bernie Gunther, Philip Kerr comes through with another unnerving adventure for his morally conflicted hero."-Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"Just as youth is wasted on the young, history is wasted on historians. It ought to be the exclusive property of novelists-but only if they are as clever and knowledgeable as Philip Kerr."-Chicago Tribune

"Kerr quantum leaps the limitations of genre fiction. Most thrillers insult your intelligence; his assault your ignorance."-Esquire

"A richly satisfying mystery, one that evokes the noir sensibilities of Raymond Chandler and Ross Macdonald while breaking important new ground of its own."-Los Angeles Times

"Part of the allure of these novels is that Bernie is such an interesting creation, a Chandleresque knight errant caught in insane historical surroundings. Bernie walks down streets so mean that nobody can stay alive and remain truly clean."-John Powers, Fresh Air (NPR)

"The Bernie Gunther novels are first-class, as stylish as Chandler and as emotionally resonant as the best of Ross Macdonald."-George Pelecanos

"Kerr's stylish noir writing makes every page a joy to read."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
