France 1956 and Bernie Gunther is on the run. If there is one thing he's learned it is never to refuse a job from a high-ranking secret policeman but that's just what he's done and now he's a marked man with the East German Stasi on his tail. Fleeing across Europe he remembers the last time he worked with his pursuer - in 1939, to solve a murder at the Berghof, Hitler's summer hideaway in the Bavarian Alps. Hitler is long dead, the Berghof a ruined shell, and the bizarre time Bernie spent there should be no more than a distant memory. It had been April, and in one week Hitler was to arrive to celebrate his 50th birthday. But Martin Bormann, who controls everything on Hitler's mountain, has a problem. One of his civil engineers has been found murdered on the terrace of the Führer's very private residence, and the killer is still at large. Gunther has one week to wrap up the case, so sleep is not an option and a generous supply of amphetamines helps. But can Bernie survive? He is a sly, subversive, sardonic and occasionally hilarious protagonist created by one of the greatest master storytellers in English. Remainder mark. 560pp in paperback.
