Présentation de l'éditeur

'A man doesn't work for his enemies unless he has little choice in the matter.'

So says Bernie Gunther, when he finds himself working for French Intelligence - it was either that or hang for murder. His job is to meet and greet POWs returning to Germany, and to find a French war criminal and member of the French SS who has been posing as a German Wehrmacht officer. The French are anxious to catch up with this man and deal with him in their own ruthless way. But Bernie's past is about to catch up with him - in a way he could never have foreseen.

En voulant rejoindre la République Dominicaine à partir de Cuba, Bernie Gunther se fait alpaguer par les Américains et se trouve contraint de travailler pour leurs services secrets. Après quelque temps dans une prison en compagnie de criminels de guerre nazis, les Ricains le lancent sur la piste d'un haut responsable est-allemand (on est en 1954) que Bernie a côtoyé dans les années 30. Comme d'habitude, il doit jouer serrer pour sortir intact de cette situation délicate.
Field grey est dans la lignée stylistique des précédents opus de la série, on n'a pas de mauvaise surprise. L'intrigue est assez linéaire, et s'il y'a de nombreux flash-backs dans le passé, c'est pour revenir sur la guerre de Gunther. On en apprend plus sur ses différentes missions dans la SD ou son internement chez les soviétiques. A lire pour les inconditionnels !!!

His books not only are fascinating polars but bring so much more about the history of our time.He takes us through nazism and communism and the Weimar republic before and after the war I read all his books I think) and have the same feeling towards them all:they are just great.

Un peu inattendu comme intrigue.Mais le suspense reste entier jusqu'au bout.Dommage, la fin arrive peut-être d'une manière un peu abrupte.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Bernie Gunther's life told in flashbacks 6 octobre 2016
Par Mal Warwick - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Havana, 1954. This is Bernie Gunther’s story. A former German officer, living under an assumed name. A high-ranking Cuban intelligence officer has threatened to kill him unless he refuses to spy on his boss, the American gangster Meyer Lansky. Since neither alternative is appealing, Bernie has resolved to flee Cuba for Haiti. He has no sooner made his escape from the island on a powerboat than he is forced to allow the US Navy to search his vessel. There, they discover his ride-along, a young woman active in Castro’s nascent revolution, who proceeds to shoot one of the American officers. Soon Bernie is on his way to a US prison camp in New York.

A turbulent life, in flashbacks

Thus begins Field Gray, the seventh in Philip Kerr’s long-running Bernie Gunther series. How all this happens, and why, only gradually becomes clear in a dizzying series of flashbacks. The story rockets from Havana and New York to Minsk in 1941, to Germany in 1954, 1931, and then 1940, then on to France in 1940. The book continues in this vein, filling in the blanks in Bernie’s life over the course of more than two decades. In previous installments in the series, we’ve learned some of the details. Now we learn the flesh-and-blood details, often gory. Along the way we catch glimpses of several prominent historical figures in Nazi Germany, including Reinhard Heydrich, Heinrich Himmler, Arthur Nebe, and others, as well as Meyer Lansky. Even Graham Greene makes an anonymous cameo appearance.

Not an easy story to tell

Bernie Gunther’s story is not easy to tell. He fought for Germany in World War I, served as a police investigator in Berlin until 1934, then became the house detective at the famed Adlon Hotel. Later, he went into partnership as a private eye. Heinrich Himmler’s notorious #2, Reinhard Heydrich, forced him back into into the police department in 1938 and then into the SS to take up a special assignment in France.

Ranked as a captain in the SS, Bernie fought on the Eastern Front in the Soviet Union. Eventually captured by the Russians, he survived a brutal year in a Soviet prison camp. After escaping, a German war criminal framed him for murders he himself had committed, forcing Bernie to flee to Argentina. There he lived under an assumed name for five years under the thumb of former SS officers. By 1954, Bernie had moved on to Cuba, where he was working in security at one of Meyer Lansky’s hotel-casinos. This is where we find him as Field Gray opens.

Bernie’s take on all this? “I’m tired of the whole damned business. For twenty years I’ve been obliged to work for people I didn’t like. Heydrich. The SD. The Nazis. The CIC. The Perons. The Mafia. The Cuban secret police. The French. The CIA. All I want to do is read the newspaper and play chess.”

Grounded in historical fact

Philip Kerr does research well. His writing about Germany in the 1930s and 40s is right on target. His portraits of the historical figures who crop up in Bernie’s story are accurate, if my own reading of history can be believed. Though the succession of flashbacks in the novel can be disorienting at times, Kerr manages to move the story along at a rapid clip. Read this book, and you’ll be guessing about what happens next all the way to the end.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Reading While Traveling 10 décembre 2016
Par D.H. Wayne - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The entire Bernie Gunther series by Philip Kerr is great reading. While I tend to read non-fiction Kerr has me hooked on the German version of Mike Hammer. The stories are always steeped in historical accuracy and draw you in from the first page. I particularly enjoyed Field Gray as it ties to several of the earlier stories. Normally I sleep on airplanes but if I am working through a "Bernie Gunther" story I can't put it down. Kerr's style of writing is very entertaining.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Real Vivid Thriller of Impeccable Research and Characterisation 3 novembre 2015
Par Dr. R. Brandon - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Another superb Bernie Gunther thriller by Philip Kerr. The plot has far too many twists and turns to even attempt to summarise it but suffice to say it contains all the ingredients Kerr fans have come to expect. We find ex-Berlin cop Bernie Gunther now in Cuba in 1954 at the height of the Cold War but fear not, much of the book is concerned with recollection of events in Europe from 1931 through to 1946. Gunther again becomes involved with real historical characters and takes part in events (well researched by the author) that actually took place and experiences various prison camps that really existed. As always Kerr supplies us with copious snippets of history, that whilst being true, do not usually turn up in mainstream history books. He has a thought provoking and interesting take on events.
The style is impeccable and the writing lucid. The characterisation and descriptions of places are beautifully graphic and so vivid that you can see the scene in your mind’s eye immediately. The story in this, the seventh Bernie Gunther novel contains, perhaps, even more twists than usual but is highly recommended to all Gunther fans and to those new to the genre.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 As usual with the series, the book skips around ... 28 juillet 2016
Par Fred Camfield - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As usual with the series, the book skips around quite a bit in time - maybe a little too much. The novel starts in Cuba in 1954 with no indication of how Bernie got there (a previous novel had him in Argentina in 1950), and ends in Germany in 1954 after bouncing from Germany to France and back again as the various intelligence services try to recruit Bernie. Bernie is not impressed and has ideas of his own. There are various flashbacks to his previous life.- Germany in 1931 - Germany and France in 1940 - Russia in 1941 - Germany in 1946 - etc. Bernie tells tales real and fanciful depending on the audience. There are characters from other novels, both real and fictional. A following novel, "The Other Side of Silence," picks up the tale in 1956. While the novel has some historical interest in details before, during, and after World War II, I thought that it was too fragmented trying to cover too many issues.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Life is trouble. Only the naiive and the young imagine that it's anything else." 25 juin 2013
Par doc peterson - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
After A Quiet Flame: A Bernie Gunther Novel and If the Dead Rise Not: A Bernie Gunther Novel I had concerns that Kerr was becoming formulaic and was running out of material for Bernie Gunther. _Field Grey_ put those worries to rest in what I think is one of his strongest stories in the series. Certainly there are some flaws, most glaringly being the Zelig-like appearance of Gunther at critical junctures of history - with Heydrich, or at the Eden Dance Palace trial for example. The introduction of a chess-piece (a gift from chess great Lasker in 1933) so late in the book and late in the series was also irritating. However, the way in which Kerr blends elements of spy fiction with historical pieces, the autobiography of Gunther and crime thriller far outweigh any reservations or complaints that I have otherwise.

Picking up where _If the Dead Rise Not_ ended, Gunther attempts to flee Cuba - and ends up spending time in several different prisons (in the US, West Germany and France), working for first the CIA and then the SDECE (Service de Documentatioan Exterieure et de Contre-Espionnage - French intelligence). As part of his debriefing and related to the work Gunther is asked to do by these security agencies, much of Gunther's wartime past is dredged up - a past that has been alluded to broadly in previous books, but never detailed. It made for riveting reading and provided depth and detail to an already fascinating character. The avoidance of the plot develoopments that made for such formulaic reading previously - the femme fatale, sacrificing a love interest, the improbable way Gunther pulls himself out of danger at the last moment - instead giving readers a labyrinth of double-crosses and double-agents further kept me on the edge of my seat.

Gunther himself remains beholding to no man, independent in thought and word, even though the price for such freedom is steep: first with the Nazis, then the Soviets and in _Field Grey_ with the Americans, Kerr shows how trecherous power can be and how easily it can be manipulated by "true believers" of an ideology towards evil ends. Given the way in which Kerr ends _Field Grey_, I am at a loss to see where Gunther's narrative can be taken next, given the influence and reach of those he has crossed. I am anxious to see what Kerr has in store for readers. The Bernie Gunther series (Berlin Noir: March Violets; The Pale Criminal; A German Requiem, The One from the Other: A Bernie Gunther Novel, A Quiet Flame: A Bernie Gunther Novel, If the Dead Rise Not: A Bernie Gunther Novel)is great story-telling, _Field Grey_ among the best. Highly recommended.
