Waterstones Says

The opening part of Kerr’s wonderfully satirical and subversive Berlin Noir trilogy and the first outing for private detective Bernie Gunther, March Violets sees a millionaire in 1930s Nazi Berlin in search for justice for his murdered daughter.

Bernhard Gunther is a private eye, specializing in missing persons. And in Hitler's Berlin, he's never short of work...

Winter 1936. A man and his wife shot dead in their bed. The woman's father, a millionaire industrialist, wants justice - and the priceless diamonds that disappeared along with his daughter's life.

As Bernie follows the trail into the very heart of Nazi Germany, he's forced to confront a horrifying conspiracy. A trail that ends in the hell that is Dachau...

Stylishly written and powerfully evocative, Kerr's crime classic, the first in the wonderful Bernie Gunther series, transports readers to the rotten heart of Nazi Berlin, and introduces a private eye in the great tradition of Hammett and Chandler.

March Violets is also available in Berlin Noir, along with The Pale Criminal and A German Requiem.

“Classic private eye novel ”

My first Bernie Gunther novel, and I loved the irreverence and the balance of light and dark. Phil Kerr has a wonderful way with words, his description of youth smoking has stuck in my mind as it amused me greatly.
