Praise For…


Praise for The Hollow-Eyed Angel

"True to form, van de Wetering keeps you guessing, tempers unflinching violence and amoral activities with thoughtful perspectives, and leaves his regular characters plenty of room to grow . . . Engaging."
Entertainment Weekly

“Van de Wetering has a light touch as he moves his detectives through one interview after another, the evidence mixed always with issues of morality and punishment, intent and act . . . Keep[s] you moving along with a satisfied smile.”
Washington Book Post World


“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

“A welcome addition to a unique series. This is a Dutch treat that is an acquired taste. But it is certainly one worth acquiring.”
Maine Sunday Telegram


“[A] satisfying mystery along with the extensive character studies. Janwillem van de Wetering knows what he’s about.”
Trenton Times


“A most enjoyable addition to a fine series.”
