9780140022810: Love in Amsterdam (Penguin crime fiction)

A Van der Valk Thriller - Elsa de Charmoy is found shot with a Mauser 765; a gun bought by her lover Martin who swears he hasn't seen her for five years. But Inspector Van der Valk, the unorthodox hero of Freeling's crime blockbusters, has misgivings and applies a subtle, insidious pressure in a masterly performance of police interrogation. Martin is driven to examine his past culminating in an edgy and ultra-hypnotic reprise for Van der Valk amidst the streets and cafes of Amsterdam.

About the Author:

Born in London in 1927, Nicolas Freeling is the author of over thirty titles, many of which are part of the crime genre. His education was broad and he attended a series of schools in England, Ireland and France. He served in the Royal Air Force, and from 1950 worked at various jobs in kitchens, hotels and restaurants throughout Europe. It was this intimate knowledge of the continent that influenced the style and settings of his subsequent books. The first of these was published in 1961. He is best known for the creation of Inspector Piet Van der Valk, an irascible detective engaged in ordinary crime, political intrigue and international affairs. Freeling is married, has four sons and one daughter and currently resides in France.
