I have never read anything by Philip Kerr, but would like to start the Bernie Gunther series. Is there a recommended sequence to start or all of the books independent of each other ? Thanks for any information.

I am just starting myself, and I found this site:
They say that March Violets is the first.

I started reading, on my Nook, book #4. I then read 5,6, and and reading Field Gray (#7) now.

I have the first three books, in paperback (one single book) waiting at home, just got it from Amazon.

I don't think it matters - the books are written so that you can jump in whenever.

Some of his other books are worth a read. They are all very good, although Gunther's are the cream. It is best that you read them in the chronological oreder, as they sometime reference prior characters. But you can read them out of order as they are relatively self contained.

The Gunther novels really are better if read in order. The first Kerr book I read was A Philosophical Investigation. It's also quite good, as is Hitler's Peace. The rest are fair to middlin'. The Gunther series seems to pick steam as the series goes on, which is quite impressive.
