I have read or listened to all of Philip Kerrs books--his stand alone books as well as the Bernie Gunther series. Typically I try to avoid books in series since the authors of such series seem to become tired of their own character as time goes on.
The Bernie Gunther character was initially so appealing that I stuck with this series and eagerly anticipated each new book. However the most recent books in this series, PRAGUE FATALE and FIELD GREY, were significant disappointments. It feels like Mr. Kerr is just churning out the series and no longer loves his character enough to continue to develop him in an interesting manner.
Also, with regards to narration, Paul Hecht's narraration doesn't hold a candle to John Lee's narration of the earlier books. But of course not many narrators can compare to John Lee.
