Excellent Nazi noir. I enjoyed Gunther as a character, and may have to keep an eye out to see if he challenges Bertie Wooster (different genre) for the Scripture Knowledge prize with his allusions. He seems fairly passive – little action, mostly brain; I’ll be interested to see him at work in the earlier novels. I was taken in along with Gunther, but caught the reveal a little earlier than he did. I appreciated the Christie nod, and aside from a little too much time in the Morning Room, this was a fine companion on the road.
The narrator was well chosen, and shaded his different character’s voices nicely, without slipping into heightened accents or acting.
