The latest New York Times bestseller from the author of the Berlin Noir trilogy and the New York Times bestseller Field Gray brings Bernie Gunther back—to a house party from hell

First introduced in Philip Kerr’s celebrated Berlin Noir trilogy, Bernie Gunther is an honest cop living in the most ruthless of times. Prague Fatale is Bernie’s latest outing, and it’s a tantalizing locked-door mystery-cum-political-thriller that’s poised to build on Field Gray‘s success, confirming Kerr as a master of espionage literature.

It’s 1941 and Bernie is back from the Eastern Front, once again working homicide in Berlin’s Kripo and answering to Reinhard Heydrich, a man he both detests and fears. Heydrich has been newly named Reichsprotector of Czechoslovakia. Tipped off that there is an assassin in his midst, he orders Bernie to join him at his country estate outside Prague, where he has invited some of the Third Reich’s most odious officials to celebrate his new appointment. One of them is the would-be assassin. Bernie can think of better ways to spend a beautiful autumn weekend, but, as he says, “You don’t say no to Heydrich and live.”

Quotes & Awards

  • “Bernie Gunther, the indomitable Berliner at the heart of this great series, is a man pummeled by history…The great strength of Field Gray is Kerr’s overpowering portrait of the war’s horrors, [and] the glue holding it all together is Bernie himself, our battered, defiant German Everyman.”

    Washington Post

  • "[Prague Fatale] is clever and compelling, proving once again that the Bernie Gunther books are, by a long chalk, the best crime series around today.”

    Daily Beast

    " For anyone who likes a fiction book based on history, this book the way to go. The book kept my attention and went by quickly. I definitely recommend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne Kittrell | 2/15/2014

    " Whoa! This was darn good and totally expected. Set in Nazi Berlin in the middle of WW2, our hero does not get along with the powers that be. Manipulation is the name of the game here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon Nuckols | 2/14/2014

    " Excellent addition to the series! Can't wait for more... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan Michalcik Fox | 2/12/2014

    " Great historical fiction/great suspense/great protagonist. This is the first Bernie Gunther novel I've read--I plan to go back to the first in the series to get to know Bernie better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Sachs | 2/9/2014

    " very good. A look at what it might have been like during WWII in Germany and Czechoslovakia with some real life characters included. A good mystery, but mainly strong on the atmospherics. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Irene | 2/5/2014

    " I had read a good review of this book, so when I ran across it in the library, I picked it up. I didn't realize that this was #8 about Bernie Gunther, the main character, but I didn't feel that not having read any of the previous ones made a difference. I just wasn't really into the book. The only interesting part was Gunther's actual murder investigation. I didn't like all the Nazi intrigues and had a hard time keeping all the names straight. I often forgot from one day to the other the details of what I had read before. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Manray9 | 1/21/2014

    " Not Kerr's best. The plot is forced. Events and characters don't ring true. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 1/15/2014

    " Another good read from Phillip Kerr, weaved around internal rivalries and events in wartime Prague. I have never tried to check any of the events myself but Kerr appears to do a lot of research and have a deep knowledge of the period. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sean | 1/14/2014

    " Might be the best Bernie Gunther. Kerr is amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Al Stoess | 12/2/2013

    " Another good book by Kerr. Depressing. Informative about conditions in Germany during WWII. Good story in the Bernie Gunther series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marina | 12/2/2013

    " I liked this book very much. It is a fiction thriller with real Nazi SS. I.e. the story has these real people in this fictional plot and some of the events actually ocurred. It is very intreresting indeed "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyssa | 11/12/2013

    " I loved this book! Good, relaxing, easy reading set in Nazi Germany and Czechoslovakia just before Reinhard Heydrich was assassinated. This is the middle of a series of books I just found by a Scots author and I am psyched to read all the others in the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trish | 5/13/2013

    " The best Bernie Gunther book since the original Berlin Noir trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 2/20/2013

    " Not one of Kerr's best but I still love his books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tuck | 2/4/2013

    " one of the lesser bernie gunther novels, but on the other hand, one of the best of the genre, so could be five stars too. all hell, it is then. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Riodelmartians | 1/31/2013

    " Bernie has more than nine lives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vickie | 1/23/2013

    " While not quite as good as the others in the Bernie Gunther series, this one still is a compelling story of a police detective in Nazi Germany who doesn't drink the party Kool-Aid. "
