First published in 1991, this title concludes Philip Kerr's masterful Berlin Noir trilogy. (THE ONE FROM THE OTHER, 2006, added a fourth to the series.) P.I. Bernie Gunther takes a case that allows him to leave his personal miseries behind in war-torn Berlin and to head to Vienna in order to prove the innocence of a black marketeer. John Lee uses his handsome voice to excellent advantage in this gritty story of post-war Germany, where nothing is as it seems, no one is innocent, and survival is primary. Lee expertly delivers Kerr's historically driven details, including the complexities of U.S. complicity in postwar deals with former enemies and the ironic tangles of morality and war. Lee turns in another inspired performance with this dark, disturbing book. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
