I am an avid fan of audiobooks. Recently, I found Bernie Gunther and, not thinking I was a fan of noir-style storylines, was completely enthralled by the character, the world in which he lives, and the smooth style with which he "operates".
I am ecstatic that there are an additional 6 books in the series and, while not there yet, must believe that Mr. Kerr has not yet written "one too many".
Philip, please keep the stories coming. You're a fantastically skilled storyteller, and your works are very much appreciated. If you have influence with your publisher, please push for John Lee to narrate the audio versions. He really "gets" Bernie's character.
Thanks so much for taking the time to research and write entertaining novels.
