amazon says:
Set in 1949, Kerr's excellent fourth novel to feature Bernhard Gunther (after 1991's German Requiem) finds the erstwhile PI managing a failing hotel about a mile from the site of the Dachau concentration camp. After the death of his wife, Kirsten, in a mental hospital, he calls it quits and opens a private detective agency. A series of missing-Nazi cases sets Bernie on a course that becomes increasingly complicated until he's beaten to a near pulp, had his little finger chopped off and is sent to a mysterious private estate to recover. There he's drawn into a nightmare involving the American occupation and the CIA, and soon his life hangs in the balance. Kerr's stylish noir writing makes every page a joy to read ("The little mouth tightened into a smile that was all lips and no teeth, like a newly stitched scar"). Perfectly plotted, the book builds to a satisfying conclusion.

Quite enjoyed reading this thriller as there aren't many book that deal with Germany just after the war and what it was like in 1949 so the reader gets a really good insight into how Germans were trying to deal with the war, the past, the collective guilt and to rebuild their cities and their lives. Bernie is a pretty tough character but he comes across quite believable and I kept thinking this would probably make a good film.

Picked this up last night and about 50 pages in, it all sounded very similar so I thought I have read this before and lo and behold, there is my JE from almost exactly 4 years ago.
Well, it can now go on the AVL pile at least !
