    Philip Kerr’s intricate novels featuring former Berlin homicide detective Bernie Gunther have earned ahallowed place in the hearts of mystery fans. It’s 1950, and Bernie has arrived in Argentina seeking asylum after being falsely identified as a Nazi war criminal. There he investigates the murder of a wealthy banker’s daughter ina case reminiscent of one he worked in Germany 18 years before.

    Would you listen to A Quiet Flame again? Why?

    Yes, I enjoy noir

    Some of the James Lee Burke - Dave Robicheaux series


    What does Paul Hecht bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    In my opinion, he has a dramatic voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Detecting can be a dirty business.

    Hard-boiled detective Sam Spade is hired to locate a client's sister by tailing the sister's companion. Spade's partner Miles Archer takes on the assignment, and quickly both Archer and the man he was shadowing are murdered. As Spade pursues the mystery of his partner's death, he is drawn into a circle of colorful characters, and they are all after a legendary statuette of a falcon that had long ago been made for King Charles of Spain. Encrusted with jewels, it is worth a fortune.

    Where does The Maltese Falcon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorites. I like the story line and the noir feel. I can close my eyes and put myself in the place of the characters.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I have seen the film meny times and knew the plot
