Overview

Ganadora del Premio Internacional de Novela Negra RBA 2009.
Berlin, 1934: Los nazis han logrado asegurar que los juegos olímpicos de 1936 se celebren en la ciudad pero enfrentan resistencia del exterior. Hitler y Avery Brundage, jefe del comité olímpico de los Estados Unidos, se confabulan para suavizar el antisemitismo nazi y convencer a los americanos a participar en los juegos. Bernie Gunther, el detective de planta de un hotel de lujo en Berlín, se ve arrastrado a este mundo de corrupción y doble juego, atrapado en una guerra entre facciones del aparato nazi.
Habana, 1954: Batista, apoyado por la CIA, toma el poder. Castro se encuentra tras las rejas y la mafia americana está a un punto de asumir el control total de las lucrativas industrias de la prostitución y los casinos. Bernie, quien ha sido expulsado sin ceremonia alguna de Buenos Aires, reaparece en Cuba para comenzar una vida nueva, regida por la rutina y la paz, pero descubre que no puede dejar atrás su pasado. Estando en Cuba se topa con un asesino despiadado de sus días en Berlín, a quien encuentran después misteriosamente asesinado, y a una vieja amante, quien podría ser la asesina.
Si los muertos no resucitan tiene todos los elementos que los admiradores de Philip Kerr esperan: intriga, una trama torcida y cerrada, líneas ingeniosas y un final tenso, pero aún más significativo, un Bernie Gunther más rico y sabio.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
British author Kerr sets the action of his sixth Bernie Gunther series in two distinct epochs: prewar Berlin (1934) and Havana 20 years later. Forced off the Berlin police force because of his allegiance to the old Weimar Republic, Bernie is now the Adlon Hotel's house detective. As the Nazis consolidate power, the survival of the city's Jews grows more precarious. Bernie gets embroiled in a conflict between corrupt businessmen who aim to profit from the 1936 Olympiad and a beautiful American, Noreen Charalambides, who hopes to derail U.S. participation. By the time the dust settles, Bernie is locked in a stalemate with American mobster Max Reles. Soon, Bernie will have one more murder to solve if he hopes to survive and save those dear to him. This outstanding roman noir will delight readers of detective fiction and historical thrillers alike. [LJ 2/1/10]
