The war is over and Bernie Gunther is now living on the French Riviera. He is the go-to guy at the Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, the man with touring tips or who will fill in as a fourth for bridge. As it happens, a local writer needs just that. Not just any writer, but the richest and most famous writer in the world who is being blackmailed. And it's not just a bridge partner he needs; it's some professional advice from the former Berlin homicide detective Gunther.
