Hailed by Salman Rushdie as a "brilliantly innovative thriller-writer," Philip Kerr is the creator of taut, gripping, noir-tinged mysteries that are nothing short of spellbinding. In this second book of the Berlin noir trilogy, The pale criminal brings back Bernie Gunther, an ex-policeman who thought he'd seen everything on the streets of 1930's Berlin--until he turned freelance and each case he tackled sucked him further into the grisly excesses of Nazi subculture. Hard-hitting, fast-paced, and richly detailed, The pale criminal is noir writing at its blackest and best.
