Publisher's Summary

1957, Munich. Bernie Gunther's latest move sees him working for an insurance company. Sent to Athens to investigate a claim from a fellow German for a ship that has sunk, 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’s convinced the sinking was no accident. Then the claimant is found dead. 

Bernie is strong-armed into helping the Greek police with their investigation. Who is behind the murder, and why?

Possibly the best of the series

No punches pulled here as Kerr has Gunther chasing war criminals against the background of the seamless transfer from Germany's National Socialist government to the post-war era and the unfairness of Germany 's position on Greek debt. Truly fascinating and as always well read by Harding.

Turn it up.

Volume too low. Had to turn up to maximum but Jeff Harding is still an awesome performer.
Not the best of Bernie Gunther stories but still worth listening just to find out what he gets up to.

Acropolis now? No thanks

I wish I’d listened to the sample first - Jeff Harding’s (who he?) faux - Chandleresque characterisation of Bernie really grates. Even worse are his ‘foreign’ accents: his German might as well be Romanian, or maybe Greek. His Greek sounds like Stavros the kebab shop owner after a bad souvlaki. Admittedly there’s some fantastically ropey dialogue and a convoluted and implausible plot ( yes, even more than usual) but this is about as far from the ‘noir’ of the early novels as you can get - sort of greyish pink perhaps. I’m a big fan of the franchise btw and RIP, Philip

Trans-atlantic narration dire!<br />

Philip Kerr must be spinning in his grave at the thought that his much loved hero German creation speaks with an American accent. Why oh why?

He did it again

I so enjoyed this book ..I was worried after reading so many of his books I might finally be disappointed with Bernie .Gunther ...but no chance excellent story with enough history to make it all believable . I cannot stress how important it is that Phillip does not feel the need to fill his pages with swearing rather than content... well done an author who gives you your monies worth!
