by Philip Kerr
Discover the original Bernie Gunther stories that make up the late Philip Kerr's Berlin Noir: the tale of an ex-cop turned private investigator uncovering the corruption, lies, brutality and murder that lie at the heart of Nazi Germany in the Thirties and Forties. Includes March Violets, The Pale Criminal and A German RequiemEx-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 him further into the grisly excesses of the Nazi regime.
From a vicious double murder and the search for a stolen necklace to the hunt for a serial sex murderer before the war and then the investigation of the death of an American soldier after it, Bernie Gunther hunts for the truth even as the fearful and guilty alike do everything to hide it. 'The Bernie Gunther novels are first-class, as stylish as Chandler and as emotionally resonant as the best of Ross Macdonald' George Pelecanos'A brilliantly innovative thriller writer' Salman Rushdie
