Bernie's job is simple: to meet and greet POWs returning from Germany. One of these is Edgard de Boudel, 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 as a German POW in Russia is about to catch up with him - in a way he could never have foreseen. Field Grey, Bernie Gunther's seventh outing, delivers more of the fast-paced and quick-witted action that we have come to expect from Philip Kerr. Deftly plotted, sardonic, and beautifully written, this is a crime thriller that packs a tremendous punch.
