Customer Review

on 23 April 2013
As ever, Kerr comes up with the goods again. One glaring error though, the book is written in the first person, Gunter, yet towards the end Gunter describes de brinon as looking like he knew he would be shot in 1947 which a narrator could allude to but not Gunter himself! This book is similar to the previous one in that it stands alone as a good who-dun-it and would not need to be read sequentially. Where will Kerr put Gunter next, I'd like to see some young Gunter, brought back to Berlin (the books set there are far more atmospheric I find) in the 1930's. A small criticism I could level at this and the previous title is that the locations just aren't as well brought to life as some of the scenes from the early novels, maybe this is due to the speed at which Kerr is now knocking these novels out! Kerr is the master of this genre of historically fiction, there is plenty more mileage in Gunter yet, but I also recommend William Ryan for those who can't wait for the next Gunter book.
