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

About the Author

Philip Kerr is the author of many novels, but perhaps most important are the five featuring Bernie Gunther—A Quiet Flame, The One from the Other, and the Berlin Noir trilogy (March Violets, The Pale Criminal, and A German Requiem). He lives in London and Cornwall, England, with his family.

gorzd, January 20, 2012 (view all comments by gorzd)
best noir ever - memorable characters, vivid sense of time and place. Detective Bernie Gunther in Berlin before, during, after WWII. An amazing page-turner rich in historical detail. Hard to believe Kerr is a contemporary Brit.
