Synopsis

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.
