Bernie Gunther returns in the twelfth book in The Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling series, perfect for fans of John le Carre and Robert Harris.

It's 1956 and Bernie Gunther is on the run. Ordered by Erich Mielke, deputy head of the East German Stasi, to murder Bernie's former lover by thallium poisoning, he finds his conscience is stronger than his desire not to be murdered in turn. Now he must stay one step ahead of Mielke's retribution. The man Mielke has sent to hunt him is an ex-Kripo colleague, and as Bernie pushes towards Germany he recalls their last case together. In 1939, Bernie was summoned by Reinhard Heydrich to the Berghof: Hitler's mountain home in Obersalzberg.

A low-level German bureaucrat had been murdered, and the Reichstag deputy Martin Bormann, in charge of overseeing renovations to the Berghof, wants the case solved quickly.

If the Fuhrer were ever to find out that his own house had been the scene of a recent murder - the consequences wouldn't bear thinking about. And so begins perhaps the strangest of Bernie Gunther's adventures, for although several countries and seventeen years separate the murder at the Berghof from his current predicament, Bernie will find there is some unfinished business awaiting him in Germany.

Read an exclusive introduction to Prussian Blue by Philip Kerr.

Don't miss the latest Bernie Gunther series novel, new for 2018, Greeks Bearing Gifts is published on 3 April 2018 and is available to order now.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Once again Kerr leads us through the fact of history and the vagaries of human nature' - Tom Hanks

'Bernie Gunther is as insubordinate, combative, interesting and entertaining as ever . . . yet another Kerr triumph.' - Sunday Times

'Bernie Gunther - sly, subversive, sardonic, and occasionally hilarious - is one of the greatest anti-heroes ever written, and as always he lights up this tough and unflinching novel. We're in good hands here.' - Lee Child 

'In Prussian Blue, Philip Kerr once more shows himself one of the greatest master story-tellers in English. The narrative is swift and adept, and so well-grounded in the history and custom of the period that the reader is totally immersed." - Alan Furst

'The twelfth Bernie Gunther mystery is as brisk and agile as its German police detective protagonist.' - Washington Post

'Gunther offers a wry view of several real figures, notably Heydrich and Bormann, and a pithy up-close analysis of the whole Nazi machine. Thrilling.' - Sunday Times Crime Club
