Eighth Bernie book due out in Britain in Oct 2011!

edited May 2012 in General
It will be called Prague Fatale.

Here's what Kerr told an interviewer with Kirkus Reviews recently: "I am afraid I cannot discuss the plot of this book except to say that it is no longer called The Man with the Iron Heart. It turned out that there was another book with that title. My book, half of which is set in Prague, is now called Prague Fatale. It’s set in October 1941. Think the Golem of Prague with Nazis."

The Quercus Web site gives the title as The Prague Fatale.

So in addition to learning more about Bernie's time spent during the war, we should be getting the backstory of his marriage to Kirsten. Should be fun!

  • We're happy to report the publisher's description of Prague Fatale is now available:

    "September 1941: Bernie Gunther returns from the horrors of the Eastern Front to find his home city of Berlin changed, and changed for the worse. The blackout, rationing, the RAF, the S-Bahn murderer and Czech terrorists are all conspiring to make life very unpleasant. Now back at his old desk on Homicide in Kripo HQ, Alexanderplatz, Bernie starts to investigate the death of a Dutch railway worker, while starting something - of an entirely different nature - with a local good-time girl.

    "But he is obliged to drop everything when his old boss, Reinhard Heydrich of the SD, the new Reichsprotector of Bohemia and Moravia, orders him to Prague to spend a weekend at his country house. It's an invitation Bernie feels he would gladly have been spared, especially when he meets his fellow guests - all of them senior loathsome figures in the SS and SD.

    "The weekend turns sour almost immediately, when a body is found in a room that was locked from the inside. The spotlight falls on Bernie to show off his investigative skills and solve this seemingly impossible mystery. And if he fails to do so, he knows what is at stake - not only his reputation, but also that of Heydrich, a man who does not like to lose face.

    "So begins the most diplomatically sensitive case of Bernie Gunther's police career."

    Bernie takes on a locked-room mystery -- sounds fantastic!!

  • I just received my copy today, here in the States. Pre ordered it from the UK.

    I am just finishing FG. Since PF is the last book of the series ( at least for the moment)..I think I am going to save it for a bit. Read each BG book, one after the other. Don't want to not have a BG story to look forward to... ;>)
