Perhaps Kerr's best to date

by DocS on Apr 4, 2007

Read this and be amazed. Kerr's pre and post war Germany detective stories show complete mastery of "tough" and humorous diction of classic noir mysteries and wear incredible depth of knowledge, if not erudition, easily. If you can tolerate a few instances of extreme violence, well within bounds for the time and place, you will find these engrossing and rewarding reading. Kerr piles on fascinating details and keeps the plot moving, while developing a highly unusual protagonist convincingly. This could be his best effort to date, as it delineates the links between the Nazi extermination of Germany's Jewish population and forces that are still very much alive in the Middle East today. This is far more than a good story; it shows that forces contributing to Hitler's "final solution" are still a factor in the world today.
