Praise

Praise for the Grijpstra and de Gier mysteries

“Good thrillers are necessarily about good versus evil, but hardly any thrillers try to explore the philosophical nature of either one . . . A couple of attending virtues make Janwillem van de Wetering’s new novel more than a routine case of venality and violence. One is a world-weary humor . . . the other is an exploration of a good guy’s ethic and a bad guy’s ethos.”
—Los Angeles Times

“Sit back and revel in the pleasures of van de Wetering’s original take on everything from police corruption to the US military’s role in international oil piracy.”
Chicago Tribune

“Entertaining.”
Washington Post Book World

“For lovers of the Amsterdam Cops, this is an especially exotic treat; for newcomers it will be a sparkling and more than usually offbeat introduction.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
 
“One of the more fetching outings for van de Wetering’s offbeat Amsterdam cops—offering a leisurely, whimsical mixture of resourceful action, psychological confrontation, and philosophical repartee . . . An engaging excursion, dark-edged yet oddly lighthearted.”
—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
