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

Bernie Gunther returns to his desk on homicide from the horrors of the Eastern Front to find Berlin changed for the worse.

He begins to investigate the death of a railway worker, but is obliged to drop everything when Reinhard Heydrich of the SD orders him to Prague to spend a weekend at his country house. Bernie accepts reluctantly, especially when he learns that his fellow guests are all senior figures in the SS and SD.

The weekend quickly turns sour when a body is found in a room locked from the inside. If Bernie fails to solve this impossible mystery not only is his reputation at stake, but also that of Reinhard Heydrich, a man who cannot bear to lose face.

If so, he has pulled it off with aplomb' Sunday Times. * Sunday Times * 'Historically accurate with a forensic eye for period detail ... a thoroughly intriguing story in a fast-paced, psychologically engaging whodunit' Lady. * Lady * 'This is a locked-room murder, worthy of Agatha Christie' Independent. * Independent * 'Somehow Mr Kerr just gets better and better' Telegraph. * Telegraph *
