It's 1954, and Bernie Gunther sails to Florida, where he's arrested, returned to Cuba, and imprisoned. There he meets Castro, and a French intelligence officer, Thibaud. Exhaustively questioned by Thibaud, Bernie is flown to Berlin with a proposition: work for the French or hang for murder. But Bernie's past as a German POW in Russia is about to catch up with him - in a way he could never have foreseen.

Where is Jeff Harding?

It is an excellent book in the Bernie Gunter series, but what happened to Jeff Harding? His American accent fitted the cynical 'film-noir-ish' character of the books. This narrator does OK, but his accent is too English (though I think he is Canadian).

Another good Bernie Gunther book, however...

I had waited in anticipation for this book, having listened to the whole series in sequence again and was rather disapointed to discover Jeff Harding wasn't narrating. Jeff Harding is Bernie Gunther.

This change equates to replacing John Thaw as Inspector Morse half way through a series.

This ruined my first listen, but on a second listen I enjoyed the story but it was soured by the change of narrator.

However if this is your first venture into the life and times of Bernie Gunther I imagine it would be a pretty good listen.

I hope Jeff Harding is reinstated for the final book.

This should have been a great book, for me it wasn't indeed I didn't finish it., tedious in my view discribes it best. It doged about different time frames without to much effort in connection, to many characters that played little part in what should have been a plot. For me the only saving grace was the narrator but he couldn't save this book. On the whole a waste of a good credoit
