about this item

'For Christmas, I would like all of Philip Kerr's Berlin Noir novels.' Sam Mendes, Guardian 'Blends high-powered storytelling with a rich piece of historical re-creation' Independent 'Kerr makes his star turns - Heydrich, ******, et al - eerily believable' Times 'Powerful period flavour; a gruff, subversive hero; Kerr delivers the good' Literary Review 'Echoes of Raymond Chandler...vivid and well-researched' Evening Standard The second in Philip Kerr's iconic 'Berlin Noir' trilogy, The Pale Criminal sees detective Bernie Gunther return to hunt one of the most evil killers in human history. Bernie Gunther is back on the mean streets of Berlin with his new partner, Bruno Stahlecker, another ex-police officer. But on a seemingly straightforward stakeout, Bruno is killed, and Bernie suddenly finds himself tapped for a much bigger job. A serial sex murderer is killing ****** teenage girls in Berlin - and what's worse, he's making utter fools of the police. Gunther is forced to accept a temporary post in Obergruppenfuehrer Reinhard Heydrich's state Security Service, with a team of men underneath him tasked purely with hunting the killer. But can he trust his team any more than he can trust his superiors? An unflinching, fast-paced thriller exploring the grisly excesses of ****** subculture, The Pale Criminal will be loved by fans of Robert Harris and Frederick Forsythe.
