In 1942, there are worse places to be than Switzerland and detective Bernie Gunther has seen most of them. So when he's asked to track down Dalia Dresner - The beautiful rising star of German cinema who's rumoured to be in Zurich he takes the job. Not that he has much choice - The request comes from Goebbels himself. But this errand proves anything but simple. The elusive Dresner has connections to fanatical fascists in Croatia, where the Ustase regime leaves even hardened Wehrmacht observers sickened. Even his time on the eastern front hasn't prepared Bernie for this fresh snake pit. Meanwhile the Swiss police have an intriguing cold case that they want Bernie to take a look at, one that keeps leading back to parts of Berlin that Bernie desperately hoped he'd left behind. Bernie hasn't mellowed one Iota and his mordant wit and cynical observations are as sharp as ever. But even as his weary horror at the Nazi regime threatens to overwhelm him, one thing drives him on from Berlin to Zurich to Zagreb - Bernie Gunther has fallen in love.
