When private investigator Bernie Gunther agrees to track down some stolen jewels, his search takes him down the dangerous streets of pre-World War 2 Berlin and into the path of the most influential players in Nazi Germany... Wisecracking cop turned private investigator Bernie Gunther specializes in missing persons, and as the Third Reich's power has grown, Bernie has become a very busy man. But as he takes on cases involving millionaire industrialists, stolen diamonds, and Hitler's most powerful cronies, Bernie finds himself mired in the brutality and corruption of a country on the brink of war. Hard-hitting, fast-paced, and richly detailed, March Violets is noir writing at its blackest and best.

Review quote

"Echoes of Raymond Chandler but better on his vivid and well-researched detail than the master." --Evening Standard"Taut, brutal, coarse, believable and gripping stuff." --Sunday Telegraph

"Kerr's complex intrigue allows space for brilliantly provoking political asides." --Sunday Times
