A Quiet Flame Summary


A Quiet Flame: Bernie Gunther Thriller 5 by Philip Kerr

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

Posing as an escaping Nazi war-criminal Bernie Gunther arrives in Buenos Aires and, having revealed his real identity to the local chief of police, discovers that his reputation as a detective goes before him.

A young girl has been murdered in peculiarly gruesome circumstances that strongly resemble Bernie's final case as a homicide detective with the Berlin police. A case he had failed to solve.

Circumstances lead the chief of police in Buenos Aires to suppose that the murderer may be one of several thousand ex Nazis who have fetched up in Argentina since 1945. And, therefore, who better than Bernie Gunther to help him track that murderer down?

A Quiet Flame Reviews


Kerr brilliantly evokes the edgy atmosphere of the post-war period in one of the most gripping and accomplished detective novels published this year - Sunday Times * Sunday Times *
One of the great achievements of contemporary crime fiction...powerful and impressive - Observer * Observer *
Cogently plotted odyssey....cracking stuff - The Times * The Times *
'The scope and breadth of Philip Kerr's historical research, and the subtle complexity of plot structure, are worthy of Le Carre. The fast-paced, crack-a-minute delivery smacks of Chandler. The comparisons are inevitable, but Kerr parries the plaudits with ease' Irish Examiner.
