Praise for The Streetbird

“Much of the action of Streetbird revolves around the idea of ‘the honor of the station,’ and it is refreshing to hear of policemen who think in these terms. In fact, everything about Mr. Van de Wetering’s [ninth] novel is refreshing.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“Before he’s done, van de Wetering will have his say on ghettos, pornography, capitalism, est, Gurdjieff, and zero . . . The first modernist detective. To row on his dream canal, to be followed by his symbolic turtle, is to be more than disconcerted; it is to be ambushed.”
Vanity Fair

“Van de Wetering’s fame has grown to millions of readers . . . The Streetbird is his most satisfying book so far!”
Chicago Tribune

“A very special sort of mystery writer . . . Mystical, exotic and moodily ironic.”
Kirkus Reviews
