" Bernard Gunther is a private eye, specializing in missing persons. In Hitler's Berlin, He is never short of work." A thriller with an interesting setting but the author's numerous wisecracks became a bit tiresome and just didnt float my boat overall.
I am not a fan of private Eye style thrillers which become a series but I choose this book because it was set in Berlin during the Winter of 1936 and thought the setting for a crime novel in Nazi Germany could work and be really interesting.
About 50 pages into the Novel I became very tired of the sarcasm and endless wisecrack attempts at humor of the narrator and while I enjoy humour in any novel this seemed forced. I did find the author's sense of time and place acurate and the book well researched and this was the only reason I stuck with the novel as I found the characters and the plot a bit flat.
An ok read but not one I will be recommending.
