5.0 von 5 Sternen Bernie Gunther - Argentinian Secret Police Agent!, 24. April 2008

(REAL NAME)   
I just LOVE Philip Kerr's books! I love Bernie Gunther, I love Kerr's dry wit, his observations on life, his plots, his sub-plots, his other characters, and the endless witty comments. Whenever the story starts, you get sucked in like a vacuum cleaner and you are swept along, powerless to fight back. I don't normally pay full price for a book but with Kerr, I lose the will to argue with myself - it's pointless. My wallet falls out my pocket and I am paying for the book before I know what is happening.

The only two things I found slightly disappointing about this book is that a) it takes place partly in Argentina (I much prefer the books set solely in Germany) and b) the first half of the book switches constantly between 1932 Berlin and 1950 Argentina. This really disorientated me. When I read a book, I like to totally immerse myself in the atmosphere and the characters. Switching between time periods really knocked me out of joint.

The story is that Bernie, posing as a wanted SS fugitive, arrives in Argentina, along with Adolf Eichmann and another SS fugitive, where they are met by an ODESSA representative. They are given shelter, new identities and money but since Gunther decided to pretend to be a doctor, he is taken immediately to see President Peron who has a thing for SS doctors. Gunther decides to reveal his true identity to Peron and his chief of security offers Gunther a job in the SIDE secret police.

Not long after, a murdered girl is found in Buenos Aires and it is eeringly similar to an unsolved murder case that Gunther worked on in 1932, just as the Nazis were about to assume power. Suddenly he has the chance to redeem himself, to kill two birds with one stone. But as he investigates, he realises there is more than meets the eye. He finds out about Directive Eleven, Presidential secrets, Evita, missing children, death camps, SS men who want Gunther dead and a beautiful Russian female Jew that wants Gunther to help her find her parents who went missing near a top secret test site.....

Totally GRIPPING stuff. Buy it and you will LOVE it. Kerr has totally outdone himself with this one. I can't wait to see what he does next with Bernie Gunther.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nazi-Hölle diesseits und jenseits des Atlantik, 29. März 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Quiet Flame: A Bernie Gunther Novel: A Bernie Gunther Mystery (Kindle Edition)
Bernie Gunther's Berlin reputation as the complete detective both in murder and in missed persons cases is recognised in Buenos Aires. As anti-Nazi he transfers into the warren of Nazi refugees in Argentina and is used to help the Perón clique to penetrate his old countrymen for their sinister purposes. He suffers the usual ups and downs of a secret policeman. The plot is full of mysteries which are revealed at the end when Gunther is allowed to leave the Country, sadly because he has to leave his Jewish flame behind. A fascinating read with real and invented personages.

Extrem spannend, herrlich lustig mit viel Wortwitz und dazu noch in ansonsten historisch einwandfreie Recherche eingebettet. So macht lesen und dazulernen Spaß! Die Hälfte der Bernie Gunther Romane habe ich nun durch - alle bekommen 5 Sterne!

and have ordered others in the series. Started with No 4 but this one is equally good. Some of the early ones are not as convincing. Great tone, good historical knowledge but not a history lesson. Great crime novel and learned some new aspects about the 3rd Reich.
