Synopsis

Synopsis

The accidental death of his brother-in-law sends Grijpstra to the secluded town of Jameson, Maine. De Gier goes along to see the USA. But there has been a sinister pattern of deaths in the area, and the two find themselves neck-deep in a murder investigation involving shady real estate deals, with a townful of suspects and the icy breath of a cold-blooded killer stalking their every move.

"Never before have [van de Wetering's] strengths seemed so strong: the genuine humor, decency, and wisdom of his Amsterdam policemen positively glow."
Kirkus Reviews


Praise for Janwillem van de Wetering

"Mr. Van de Wetering's policemen are just as likely to . . . marvel at human nature as to shoot it down."
The New York Times

“[A] unique atmospheric mix of police procedure, quirky characters, and Zen outlook.” Boston Globe

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

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