In this riveting historical mystery novel from New York Times bestselling author Philip Kerr, Bernie Gunther trails a serial killer in 1950's Buenos Aires...
Buenos Aires, 1950. After being falsely accused of war crimes, Bernie Gunther--like the Nazis he has always despised--has been offered a new life and a clean passport by the Per n government. But the tough, fast-talking ex-Berlin detective doesn't have the luxury of laying low. The local police pressure Bernie into taking on a case in which a girl has turned up gruesomely mutilated. What's more, her murder just might be linked to a missing German banker's daughter and a long-unsolved case Bernie worked back in Berlin before the war. After all, the scum of the earth has been washing up on Argentina's shores--state-licensed murderers and torturers--so why couldn't a serial killer be among them?
