Product description


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

He served as a member of the Amsterdam Special Constabulary and was once a Zen Buddhist monk. He is renowned for his detective fiction, including Outsider in Amsterdam; The Corpse on the Dike; The Japanese Corpse; The Maine Massacre, which garnered him the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière; and ten other books in the Amsterdam Cops series.
