‘One of the greatest anti-heroes ever written’ LEE CHILD

It is 1954 and Bernie Gunther is in Cuba. Tiring of his increasingly dangerous work spying on Meyer Lansky, Bernie acquires a boat and a beautiful companion and quits the island. But the US Navy has other ideas

‘A man doesn’t work for his enemies unless he has little choice in the matter.’

So says Bernie Gunther, when he finds himself working for French Intelligence – it was either that or hang for murder. His job is to meet and greet POWs returning to Germany, and to find a French war criminal and member of the French SS who has been posing as a German Wehrmacht officer. The French are anxious to catch up with this man and deal with him in their own ruthless way. But Bernie’s past is about to catch up with him – in a way he could never have foreseen.
