Berlin Noir

by Philip Kerr

Ex-Policeman Bernie Gunther thought he’d seen everything on the streets of 1930’s Berlin. But then he went freelance, and each case he tackled sucked him further into the grisly excesses of Nazi sub-culture. And even after the war, amidst the decayed, imperial splendour of Vienna, Bernie uncovered a legacy that made the wartime atrocities look lily-white in comparison . . .

‘Exceptionally good.’ The Times

Taut, brutal, coarse, believable and gripping stuff.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Echoes of Raymond Chandler but better on his vivid and well-researched detail than the master.’ Evening Standard 

‘Full marks . . . Kerr’s complex intrigue allows space for brilliantly provoking political asides.’ Sunday Times

‘Beautifully written.’ Scotsman
