I have read every Kerr book ,so I must like them. I have gone to US holocaust Memorial Museum website. I guess one is saying and the other is proving : there is no god, there is no justice, and nothing is solved by war.
I don't know how to rate this book. I don't know if I like or not. I guess the one liner by the old peasant to Pancho Villa says it all "doesn't matter who is in charge, they all still you chickens." However , this is much to simple for this book that starts slow and familiar and grows on you.
Anyone who is interested in the history of midcentury Europe cannot fail to learn a lot and enjoy by following the career of Berlin policeman Bernie Gunther from the 1920s through 1950sthrough a series of novels by Philip Kerr.
