Bernie Gunther #08: Prague Fatale
September 1941: Reinhard Heydrich is celebrating his appointment as Reichsprotector of Czechoslovakia. All his guests are high-ranking Party members and each is a suspect in a crime yet to be committed: the murder of Heydrich himself. A murder does occur, but the victim is Heydrich's young adjutant, found dead in his room, the door and windows bolted from the inside. Anticipating foul play, Heydrich had already ordered Bernie Gunther to Prague. After more than a decade in Berlin's Kripo, Bernie had jumped ship as the Nazis came to power, setting himself up as a private detective. But Heydrich, who managed to subsume Kripo into his own SS operations, has forced Bernie back to police work. Now, searching for the killer, Gunther must pick through the lives of some of the Reich's most odious officials.
