A bit convoluted in his strung out story of why he was a Nazi spy ( told to save his life) but otherwise fascinating blend of historical fact and great fiction.

The novel starts promisingly with dark but witty Raymond Chandler-like private-eye monologues from the protagonist and ends with brilliant tale-spinning of the type that made the author's previous novels successful. Unfortunately, this one spends most of the middle dawdling as if in search of a plot to end with. Weaving in W. Somerset Maugham, his spy career and his alternate lifestyle into the plot does not salvage the dreary and the very British self-deprecation style carried to extremes.

Philip Kerr is one of my favourite authors, unfortunately this was not one of his better books.

Bernie Gunther is the quintessential anti-hero and arguably the most complex and multidimensional protagonist in crime fiction.
