Summary
It's 1957 and Bernie Gunther is back in Munich, though his passport now says 'Christof Ganz.' The war is over and Gunther is finally just another face in the crowd, an ordinary claims adjuster at a major German insurance company. Until he's sent to Athens to investigate a large claim. The policy owner, a rude and angry former Wehrmacht soldier who served in Greece during the war, is now a filmmaker and diver, the owner of a two-masted schooner--the Doris--which burned and sank in deep water off the Aegean coast. Because he lived on the boat, he has lost all his camera equipment and diving gear, along with several thousand drachmas' worth of personal effects. The claim is substantial. Under a different name, the Doris once belonged to a wealthy Jewish merchant, but when Greek Jews were sent to Auschwitz, their property was confiscated and sold off. After the war, the few Jews who returned were denied restitution. In the case of the Doris, Gunther suspects arson motivated by revenge: an act of terrorism, then. And the Doris was never insured against acts of terrorism. But before he can transmit this news to the owner, he finds someone has gotten to him first. What Gunther now has is the badly mutilated body of a dead man
