Après le succès de L'Affaire Léon Sadorski, une nouvelle enquête du sinistre et fascinant inspecteur des Renseignements généraux. Paris, 29 mai 1942 : une bombe explose devant le Palais de justice, dans un café fréquenté par les Brigades spéciales, faisant deux morts et plusieurs blessés. Quelques jours plus tard, le cadavre d'une inconnue est découvert en banlieue. Crime passionnel ou politique ? Chargé d'enquêter sur ces deux affaires, l'inspecteur Léon Sadorski voit ses projets de vacances contrariés ̶ d'autant plus qu'il doit bientôt participer à la grande rafle du Vél d'Hiv, exigée par les nazis et confiée à la police française. Un destin tragique menace désormais sa jeune voisine Julie Odwak, la lycéenne juive qu'il convoite en secret et dont il a fait interner la mère. " Sobriété avant tout : Simenon n'est pas loin. Mais, ici, le crime est de masse. " Frédéric Pagès, Le Canard enchaîné. " Un énorme pavé dans le bourbier de la collaboration. Romain Slocombe nous bouscule et réveille notre vigilance. " Valérie Caffier, librairie Le Divan, Paris.

This Edgar® Award-nominated novel in Philip Kerr’s New York Times bestselling Bernie Gunther series reveals the cynical, hard-boiled detective’s harrowing history as an unwilling SS officer in World War 2. During his eleven years working homicide in Berlin's Kripo, Bernie Gunther learned a thing or two about evil. Then he set himself up as a private detective—until 1940 when Heydrich dragooned him into the SS's field gray uniform and the bloodbath that was the Eastern Front. Spanning twenty-five tumultuous years, Field Gray strides across the killing fields of Europe, landing Bernie in a divided Germany at the height of the Cold War—revealing a treacherous world where the ends justify the means and no one can be trusted...

Patrick Modiano opens Dora Bruder by telling how in 1988 he stumbled across an ad in the personal columns of the New Year's Eve 1941 edition of Paris Soir. Placed by the parents of a 15-year-old Jewish girl, Dora Bruder, who had run away from her Catholic boarding school, the ad sets Modiano off on a quest to find out everything he can about Dora and why, at the height of German reprisals, she ran away on a bitterly cold day from the people hiding her. He finds only one other official mention of her name on a list of Jews deported from Paris to Auschwitz in September 1942. With no knowledge of Dora Bruder aside from these two records, Modiano continues to dig for fragments from Dora's past. What little he discovers in official records and through remaining family members, becomes a meditation on the immense losses of the peroid—lost people, lost stories, and lost history. Modiano delivers a moving account of the ten-year investigation that took him back to the sights and sounds of Paris under the Nazi Occupation and the paranoia of the Pétain regime as he tries to find connections to Dora. In his efforts to exhume her from the past, Modiano realizes that he must come to terms with the specters of his own troubled adolescence. The result, a montage of creative and historical material, is Modiano's personal rumination on loss, both memoir and memorial.

In BERLIN NOIR, Philip Kerr’s first three Bernie Gunther novels – MARCH VIOLETS, THE PALE CRIMINAL, A GERMAN REQUIEM -- are compiled in one volume, the perfect introduction to the “best crime series around today” (The Daily Beast). Ex-policeman Bernie Gunther thought he'd seen everything on the streets of 1930s Berlin. But then he went freelance, and each case he tackled sucked him further into the grisly excesses of Nazi subculture. And even after the war, amidst the decayed, imperial splendour of Vienna, Bernie uncovered a legacy that made the wartime atrocities look lily-white in comparison... From the Trade Paperback edition.
