About this title

Synopsis:

A Grijpstra & De Gier Mystery Grijpstra and De Gier are being blackmailed. A wealthy yacht owner and his son want the retired policemen to investigate the hijacking in the Caribbean of an entire cargo of oil from a supertanker and are threatening to reveal information they have on them to the tax authorities. Their rendezvous is Key West where, amongst other things, they are confronted by a murder. ""One of the masters of the mystery form."" - Los Angeles Times

Review:

Praise for The Perfidious Parrot

"One of their most exotic adventure to date . . . A shamelessly materialistic good time is had by all."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Sit back and revel in the pleasures of van de Wetering's original take on everything from police corruption to the U.S. Military's role in international oil piracy."
--Chicago Tribune

"Entertaining."
--Washington Post Book World

"For lovers of the Amsterdam Cops, this is an especially exotic treat; for newcomers it will be a sparkling and more than usually offbeat introduction."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"A worthwhile and spiritually side-splitting experience."
--Maine Times

"What the author has pulled off here is significant: He's managed to write a noir thriller animated by a genuine (if cynical) sense of humor."
--Islands Magazine
