"Author of a highly acclaimed series of mystery novels, world
traveller, former Zen student, and former police officer Janwillem
van de Wetering brings an unusual perspective to the detective
genre. His novels and stories feature a diverse and richly drawn
cast of characters and settings that range from the streets of
Amsterdam to the Caribbean and from rural Maine to Japan, South
America, and New Guinea. A careful eye for the details of police
investigations is joined with a quirky sense of humor and a keen
interest in philosophical and spiritual matters."
