THE OTHER SIDE OF SILENCE - Philip Kerr
The latest "Bernie Gunther" We find him working as a hotel concierge on Nice when a former Nazi SS Captain known to Bernie walks into the hotel.
This Nazi is now operating as a blackmailer and his target is Somerset Maugham. There is a photograph in his possession showing several men in compromising positions at Maugham's house including Guy Burgess.
Bernie gets involved as he normally does and we have a solid thriller. I've been with the series since day one and they are solid. Brag time, I've met Mr Kerr and I was one of those boring buggers who wanted a photograph, for which he obliged.
A good read and a good series to read.
