It looks like the you can look up contacts only using the '--title' qualifier which seem to search the name of the contacts. This query seems to be half baked anyway, it is case sensitive and searches only at the beginning of the field.

Examples:

google contacts list --title Markus
-> I get all contacts with the first name 'Markus'

google contacts list --title markus
-> I get no result

google contacts list --title Baertschi
-> I get no results, there are a bunch of Baertschi in my contacts

I would like to search in all fields, limit the search to some fields and search for people in certain groups too.

Proposals:
- Global search --search "search words"
  -> return contacts there the search words figure anywhere in the record
  -> allow for field qualifiers: 'name:markus' searches only the name field

- Group limits --group "group"
  -> limits the search to the indicated group
  -> Examples: google contacts list --group "Business"
               google contacts delete --group "Business"

Don’t know if you know regex.

Try 

    google contacts list --title "(?i).*baertschi"

Sure, that’s clumsy, but it works.
