Metropolis is the closing chapter in the Bernie Gunther thriller series by the late Philip Kerr, who passed away last year. Just before his death, he was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. He won several Shamus awards and was a 3-time Edgar finalist. This story goes back to the beginning, with Gunther’s first weeks on Berlin’s Murder Squad, where in addition to the political turmoil roiling the city, there is a killer on the loose. Gunther must work his case in the atmosphere of a Nazified police department. “[ Metropolis is] a perfect goodbye–[or] first hello” (Washington Post)
