This The New York Times bestseller will make the Bernie Gunther series the new gold standard in thrillers.Bernie Gunther is one of the great protagonists in thriller literature. During his eleven years working homicide in Berlin's Kripo, Bernie learned a thing or two about evil. Then he set himself up as a private detective-until 1940 when Heydrich dragooned him into the SS's field gray uniform and the bloodbath that was the Eastern Front. Spanning twenty-five tumultuous years, Field Gray strides across the killing fields of Europe, landing Bernie in a divided Germany at the height of the Cold War. Bernie's latest outing will mesmerize both readers of the Berlin Noir trilogy and anyone who loves historical thrillers, catapulting this cult favorite to breakout stardom.

(The seventh book in the Bernie Gunther series)

Brilliant writing and thought provoking. How does a 20something male in Nazi Germany stay alive despite his objections to the Nazi regime. A bit too many brutal torture scenes for my taste but,l as others have said, very well wroth the struggle to read this excellent book

I found this a long, slow read. Kept at it & found the end rewarding but not sure even it was worth the hard slog to get there.

I agree with Margaret Cannon, how will this end? Kerr has created yet another compelling installment in the life of Bernie Gunther. Since Berlin Noir I have been hooked on this series and Kerr still manages to throw in a surprise or two. I feel like I've known Bernie all my life and I dread his final case, if there is one.

"How and when does a brilliant author end a great series? Conan Doyle killed off Sherlock Holmes and then had to resurrect him. Agatha Christie gave Hercule Poirot a final case and a quiet demise. Recently, Henning Mankell finished his marvellous Kurt Wallander run with one devastating sentence. That brings us to Field Grey, Philip Kerr’s seventh novel starring Berlin cop Bernie Gunther. For the past three novels, all set in the postwar world, Bernie has been on the run, in hiding, scratching by. He’s 58, a survivor of two world wars and countless conspiracies. In Field Grey, Kerr’s darkest and most complex Gunther book, we find him alone, lonely and forced, in the most graphic way, to face his personal and political pasts."
