Reviews

Once again Kerr leads us through the fact of history and the vagaries of human nature -- Tom Hanks
Bernie Gunther is as insubordinate, combative, interesting and entertaining as ever . . . yet another Kerr triumph * Sunday Times *
Bernie Gunther - sly, subversive, sardonic, and occasionally hilarious - is one of the greatest anti-heroes ever written, and as always he lights up this tough and unflinching novel. We're in good hands here * Lee Child *
In Prussian Blue, Philip Kerr once more shows himself one of the greatest master story-tellers in English. The narrative is swift and adept, and so well-grounded in the history and custom of the period that the reader is totally immersed * Alan Furst *
The twelfth Bernie Gunther mystery is as brisk and agile as its German police detective protagonist * Washington Post *
Gunther offers a wry view of several real figures, notably Heydrich and Bormann, and a pithy up-close analysis of the whole Nazi machine. Thrilling * Sunday Times Crime Club *
Prussian Blue would be an exceptional achievement considered on its own, but it is incredible to think that this is the 12th novel in an on-going series which is yet to produce a dud. The research and accuracy of the historical setting match that of Alan Furst, but the hardboiled dialogue and Chandlerian turns of phrase raise Kerr's work even higher. Part adventure thriller, part historical procedural, Prussian Blue and Bernie Gunther never make a mis-step * Crimesquad *
As usual, Kerr is superb at imaginatively mixing his fictional detective with well-researched true-life characters and events * The Times *
A brilliantly twisting tale of espionage and betrayal * Sunday Times *
Kerr's novels are modern classics * Simon Sebag Montefiore *
Streets ahead of most other historical thrillers in its blend of wit, careful plotting and the kind of detail that brings the past to life * Sunday Times *
Bernie Gunther is one of the more interesting and original private eyes in thriller fiction * The Times *
[Kerr's] Raymond Chandleresque mysteries about a cynical Berlin cop reluctantly working for the Nazis are his masterpiece * Sun *
Philip Kerr's Bernie Gunther novels are a high benchmark in noir fiction that blend clandestine historical fact with an epic imagination . . . Prussian Blue is an icy warning from history * Crimesquad *
