Reviews

Praise for Hard Rain "Good thrillers are necessarily about good versus evil, but hardly any thrillers try to explore the philosophical nature of either one . . . A couple of attending virtues make Janwillem van de Wetering's new novel more than a routine case of venality and violence. One is a world-weary humor . . . the other is an exploration of a good guy's ethic and a bad guy's ethos." --Los Angeles Times "One of the more fetching outings for van de Wetering's offbeat Amsterdam cops--offering a leisurely, whimsical mixture of resourceful action, psychological confrontation, and philosophical repartee . . . An engaging excursion, dark-edged yet oddly lighthearted." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review "A fast-moving story that combines action, detection, satire, Zen philosophy and pure fun, and shows van de Wetering to be at the top of his form." --Publishers Weekly
