    Not quite Chandler but charming

    I'd just read a later book in this series and decided I liked it enough o begin at the beginning. Kerr has modelled his hero on Raymond Chandler and the wisecracks initially come more frequently than they might. But it's a compelling backdrop and Gunther is a plausibly flawed lead. If you think Los Angeles is cynical and its authorities corrupt then Nazi Berlin makes LA look as pure as a mountain stream. Gunther does what he has to to survive but retains a core of decency. As you might expect, violence is quite frequent and often brutal, but Gunther's (and the author's) humanity somehow takes the edge off it. Other reviewers have said this series just gets better and I will be back for more.

    Très bonne fiction: intelligente, bien écrite et à suspens

    Le contexte historique est très bien décrit, et sert une intrigue policière plutôt bien conçue. Je vais lire la suite!
