The Lady From Zagreb Summary


The Lady From Zagreb: Bernie Gunther Thriller 10 by Philip Kerr

'One of the greatest anti-heroes ever written' LEE CHILD

Summer 1942. When Bernie Gunther is ordered to speak at an international police conference, an old acquaintance has a favour to ask. Little does Bernie suspect what this simple surveillance task will provoke...

One year later, resurfacing from the hell of the Eastern Front, a superior gives him another task that seems straightforward: locating the father of Dalia Dresner, the rising star of German cinema. Bernie accepts the job. Not that he has much choice - the superior is Goebbels himself.

But Dresner's father hails from Yugoslavia, a country so riven by sectarian horrors that even Bernie's stomach is turned. Yet even with monsters at home and abroad, one thing alone drives him on from Berlin to Zagreb to Zurich: Bernie Gunther has fallen in love.

Kerr's novels are modern classics -- Simon Sebag Montefiore
The best crime novels around today -- Malcolm Forbes
The good detective trying to do his best within a corrupt regime, few writers have tackled the theme with the rigour of Philip Kerr * Independent *
