Inhaltsangabe: The first in the Edgar-winning Inspector Van der Valk series Alluring, unstable, and frantically self-absorbed, Elsa de Charmoy was a dangerous woman, and now she?s a dead one, shot with a gun bought by Martin, her former lover. Sulking in an Amsterdam jail, Martin swears it?s been years since he saw Elsa, but Inspector Van der Valk isn?t quite ready to be persuaded. Like Georges Simenon's Inspector Maigret (to whom he is often compared), Van der Valk tends to pick apart the details, ideally over a good meal. And while Van der Valk?s ruminations may frustrate his more action-minded colleagues, they inevitably yield a surprising resolution. Freeling knew both prison and good meals: Arrested while working as a chef in a Dutch hotel, he began writing Love in Amsterdam (also titled Death in Amsterdam) on paper swiped from his jailhouse-job wrapping bars of soap. The soap?s loss was readers? gain: Freeling went on to win every important prize in mystery fiction in the U.S., France and the UK.
Über den Autor: 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.
