Prague Fatale:A Bernie Gunther Novel

Philip Kerr

Prague 1941: Nazi SS General Reinhard Heydrich is hosting a party to celebrate his appointment as Reichsprotector of Czechoslovakia, and he has chosen his guests with care. All are high-ranking Party members and each is a suspect in a crime yet to be committed: the murder of Heinrich himself. Anticipating foul play, Heydrich had already ordered Berlin police detective Bernie Gunter to Prague. A murder does occur, but the victim is a young assistant on Heydrich’s staff, found dead in his room, the door and windows bolted from inside. To find the killer, Gunther must now sort through the lives of some of the Reich’s most odious officials. A tense political mystery from the author of Field Gray (2011).
