9780140069532: The Back of the North Wind

A Henri Castang Mystery - The grisly murder of a young woman, cannibalism and political scandal rear their ugly heads in this Henri Castang mystery. And there are connections with the killings of two ordinary citizens, and a beautiful, antagonistic prostitute. This is a rare glimpse at human nature at its very worst in one of Freeling's classics.

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.
