Reviews

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 "What makes this series so engaging is that the policemen are as quirky and complicated as the criminals."
--The Washington Post "Van de Wetering's wry style might be compared to caviar . . . Once you're hooked, there's nothing like it."
--The San Diego Union Tribune
