Kerr won this award in 2009 for a previous entry in his series featuring the German private eye Bernie Gunther. This is the eleventh volume in the series and after a quarter of a century Kerr’s ingenuity shows no sign of flagging. Here Bernie finds himself trying to escape his past in the French Riviera of the 1950s in a novel that balances wit and darkness to perfection.
