This Edgar(R) Award-nominated novel in Philip Kerr's New York Times bestselling Bernie Gunther series reveals the cynical, hard-boiled detective's harrowing history as an unwilling SS officer in World War 2.
During his eleven years working homicide in Berlin's Kripo, Bernie Gunther 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--revealing a treacherous world where the ends justify the means and no one can be trusted...Binding Type:
