Praise

Praise for Philip Kerr

“Bernie just tries to behave decently in a world where the serial killers run the governments and history itself may be the biggest crime of all.” —John Powers, Fresh Air (NPR)

Praise for The Other Side of Silence

“The intricacies of the plot, partly based on Maugham’s history as a British spy in charge of a team of secret agents, make this one of Kerr’s best technical efforts. But it’s the characterization of Maugham and the sound of his voice . . . that makes this novel memorable.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Readers who love hard-boiled heroes fell for Bernie Gunther back when he was a Berlin cop talking tough to Nazi thugs (March Violets, 1989), and we loved him just as much when he was forced to become an SS soldier on the Eastern Front (Field Gray, 2011). And yet, those whose own dark core runs deep may well love the postwar Bernie most of all, the Bernie whose cynicism has slowly morphed into black despair, like whiskey gradually eating its way through a defenseless liver. . . . The Other Side of Silence is one of the best in a sterling series.” —Booklist (starred review)

“Kerr carefully develops his plot, sense of place, and characterization, enabling readers to imagine what it must have been like to have lived in a postwar morass of political and moral ambiguity. This is more than a crime or espionage novel; it’s a marvelous, hard-boiled political read.” Library Journal (starred review)

“Intricate enough to satisfy puzzle-minded readers . . . right out of the Agatha Christie playbook.” —The Washington Post

“Blackmail, murder, deception, sexual shenanigans of every sort, and an undercurrent of black humor pervade Philip Kerr’s 11th novel featuring the unsinkable German detective Bernie Gunther.”  Pittsburg Post Gazette
