When his cover is blown, former Berlin bull and unwilling
SS officer Bernie Gunther must re-enter a cat-and-mouse game
that continues to shadow his life a decade after Germanyâ€™s
defeat in World War 2...
The French Riviera, 1956: Bernieâ€™s old and dangerous
adversary Erich Mielke, deputy head of the East German
Stasi, has turned up in Niceâ€”and heâ€™s not on holiday. Mielke
is calling in a debt and wants Bernie to travel to London to
poison a female agent theyâ€™ve both had dealings with. But
Bernie isn't keen on assassinating anyone. In an attempt to
dodge his Stasi handlerâ€”former Kripo comrade Friedrich
Korschâ€”Bernie bolts for the German border. Traveling by
night and hiding by day, he has plenty of time to recall the
last case he and Korsch worked together...
Obersalzberg, Germany, 1939: A low-level bureaucrat
has been found dead at Hitlerâ€™s mountaintop retreat in
Bavaria. Bernie and Korsch have one week to find the killer
before the leader of the Third Reich arrives to celebrate
his fiftieth birthday. Bernie knows it would mean disaster
if Hitler discovers a shocking murder has been committed on
the terrace of his own home. But Obersalzberg is also home
to an elite Nazi community, meaning an even bigger disaster
for Bernie if his investigation takes aim at one of the
1939 and 1956: two different eras about to converge in an
explosion Bernie Gunther will never forget.
