Praise for Just a Corpse at Twilight

*Finalist for the Anthony Award*

“The many fans of the series should find enjoyment in Just a Corpse at Twilight, as should those readers who prefer their fictional crimes unorthodox, cerebral and slightly outrageous.”
The New York Times Book Review

“It is very good news for van de Wetering’s international legion of fans that de Gier, Grijpstra and the commissioner are back.”
The Boston Globe

“What makes this book much fun to read is its tone: clever, wry, ironic, yet gripping . . . This is sophisticated, intelligent entertainment . . . You’ll want more.”
Men’s Journal

“Intelligent, unpredictable humor . . . [a] narrative delight.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

The Guardian

“Van de Wetering is an utterly charming writer, full of wit and humor and sharp insight, a unique voice in the chorus of mystery writers.”
—The Ottawa Citizen
“Less a mystery novel than a novel about mystery . . . as usual in this piquant, much-loved series.”
Kirkus Reviews

“The welcome return of Amsterdam police detectives Henk Grijpstra and Rinus de Gier . . . Witty [and] entertaining.”
The Rotarian

Praise for Janwillem van de Wetering

“Masterly Zen mysteries.”
The New York Times Book Review

“[Van de Wetering] is doing what Simenon might have done if Albert Camus had sublet his skull.”
—John Leonard

“A superb storyteller.”
Chicago Tribune

“First and foremost in the genre is, once again, Janwillem van de Wetering…he knows police work and policemen, and he’s as sly as a Zen koan.”
Men’s Journal

“What atmosphere! Elegant! Satisfying!”
Baltimore Sun

“What makes this series so engaging is that the policemen are as quirky and complicated as the criminals.”
The Washington Post
