"Every time we''re afraid we''ve seen the last of
Bernie Gunther, Philip Kerr comes through." -The New York Times
Hailed as "one of the greatest series of crime novels in the
world" (El Pais, Spain), Philip Kerr''s Bernie Gunther
novels continue to garner fantastic acclaim both here and abroad.
This time, it''s 1954 and Bernie has resurfaced in Havana. Life is
relatively peaceful, but the world-weary ex-cop discovers that he
cannot outrun his past when he collides with an old lover-and a
vicious killer-from his life in Berlin. Alternating between the
flamboyant corruption of Batista''s Cuba and Nazi Germany during
the buildup to the 1936 Olympiad, If the Dead Rise Not is
another stunning example of Kerr''s virtuoso talent.
