September's Pick: March Violets

This month's selection is dictated more by lack of selection than actual choice. Our books are boxed up and waiting arrival to our new place. We have a couple of books with us in the meantime, one of which will be our September pick:

March Violets by Philip Kerr

Book one of the Berlin Noir trilogy, March Violets introduces "hard-boiled" private detective Bernie Gunther in the violent pre-war period in Berlin. He's "sardonic, tough-talking, and cynical" and sets himself against the Nazis in an investigation into a high stakes murder. It's Hammett, it's Chandler, it's Indiana Jones - it should be fun.
