The seventh in the always-appealing Bernie Gunther series, Field Gray is probably the one least entrenched in the usual trappings of the hard-boiled detective genre. Instead, it's both a fascinating journey into the underbelly of World War II European history, and a meditation on the horrors of war, whether as a participant or onlooker. It's a testament to Kerr that he manages to keep the narrative rolling along while forcing the reader to consider the larger moral issues at play.
