Metropolis A Bernie Gunther Novel By Kerr, Philip Book - 2019

Philip Kerr returns to the grey shadows of Weimar Republic Berlin for another Bernie Gunther tale - mired in moral ambiguity, political undertow, and the swamp of human depravity surrounding our hero. Kerr, in fact, returns to some of the historical mise en scene he does best: "Hell's metropolis, Berlin itself." Bernie Gunther is younger, perhaps more naive, but already showing the depth of moral questioning which so resonates with the film noir ethos.
A triptych of serial killers and social depravity awaits him in the underbelly of Berlin society.
