If the Dead Rise Not

If the Dead Rise Not

Bernie Gunther’s sixth outing delivers all the hard-boiled, fast-paced and quick-witted action we expect of him. Berlin is preparing to host the 1936 Olympics, and Jews are being expelled from all German sporting organisations.

Bernie Gunther, forced to resign as a homicide detective with Berlin’s Criminal Police, is now house detective at the famous Adlon Hotel. Two bodies are found – a businessman and a Jewish boxer, and Bernie is drawn into the lives of various hotel guests. One, beautiful left-wing journalist, is intent on persuading America to boycott the Olympiad. The other, a Chicago gangster, wants to use the Olympics to enrich himself and the Chicago mob.

As events unfold, Bernie uncovers a vast network of corruption and racketeering, led by those who want a slice of the fortune the Nazis are spending to showcase Germany to the world.

Reviews

'The pace is cracking, the dialogue crisply Chandleresque, the characterisation refreshingly stereotype-free. Kerr's research, historical and geographical, is all but faultless' The Times.
