A German Requiem (Bernard Gunther, #3)A German Requiem by Philip Kerr


Wow! An amazing, convoluted story that is loosely based on actual events. Makes you shudder to think of what the world was like then and what it has become today. With the shadow of the war still lingering, Bernie fights on for justice, at least what he thinks is justice, in a world that is filled with deception. The final few paragraphs of the book really describe the whole story but... no spoilers here.

Jack of Spies (Jack McColl, #1)Jack of Spies by David Downing
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The weave of history and a spy story is wonderful. The plot may have been a bit weak, or some might say what plot? All in all I'd like more Jack McColl. I think he has set us up for some great novels. I just love David Downing.

The Pale Criminal (Bernard Gunther, #2)The Pale Criminal by Philip Kerr
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story is a bit far fetched but I love Bernie and his whole attitude. Kerr does a masterful job of weaving history and his clever story.
This story is easy to read and at times a real page turner.

March Violets (Bernard Gunther, #1)March Violets by Philip Kerr
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this character. He is irreverent and witty, yet thoughtful. Gives me some views of pre-war Germany that I've never been privy to. I'm looking forward to the whole series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Interesting characters and a clever plot. Just enough real characters to make the time period come alive. I liked it a lot. Will there be more?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great plot twists and I love the way it all came together. Great view of post-war Germany. I could feel the tension in the city.
