In 1942, there are many worse places to be than Zurich, and detective Bernie Gunther has seen his fair share of them. So when a superior asks him to track down a glamorous German actress believed to be hiding in Zurich, he takes the job. Not that he has much choice: the superior is Goebbels himself. Soon Bernie finds himself involved in something much more sinister. The actress, it emerges, is the daughter of a fanatical Croatian fascist, the sadistic commandant of a notorious concentration camp. And the Swiss police have a cold case that they want Bernie to take a look at: one that seems to have connections to some powerful people back in the Reich. The Lady from Zagreb is another inimitable Bernie Gunther investigation from Philip Kerr: a rich, dark and fast-paced adventure of a nightmarish time and a lonely, indomitable hero.

Still streets ahead of most other historical thrillers in its blend of wit, careful plotting and the kind of detail that brings the past to life -- Nick Rennison Sunday Times Bernie Gunther is one of the more interesting and original private eyes in thriller fiction... as the other nine Bernie Gunther novels show, Kerr thoroughly researches the period he writes about. In particular, he excels in his atmospheric portrayal of Berlin... -- Marcel Berlins The Times ...a return to form for Kerr: it will keep diehard admirers of the Gunther novels happy and will also garner new supporters. As an alternative view of the Nazi world order, it's hard to beat. The Lady The Lady ...a satisfying slab of hardcore historical thrills... fans of the sleuth will happily add this to their growing bookshelves, but it will win over other genre-lovers too. Weekend Sport Kerr's novels are modern classics -- Simon Sebag Montefiore The best crime novels around today -- Malcolm Forbes The good detective trying to do his best within a corrupt regime, few writers have tackled the theme with the rigour of Philip Kerr Independent
