Editorial Reviews for this title:
Seventeenth-century New York is sent into turmoil by a series of grisly animal slayings that suggest devil worship and witchcraft practices, and former sheriff Pieter Tonneman is called back to duty when the woman he loves is threatened. Reprint. PW.
The first three books in Maan Meyers historical mystery series followed the Tonneman family from New Amsterdam in 1664 to 1808 New York. Now, in The Dutchman's Dilemma, we return to 1675 and the original Tonneman, Pieter, once sheriff of the island, now husband, father, and businessman, married to his beloved Racqel. When several animals are found mutilated, the whispers grow louder by the hour -- talk of devil worship and of witchcraft, dark tales of a conspiracy among the Hews. And when the killer trades horse flesh for human flesh, the city's simmering hatreds and superstitions boil over. Soon Racqel Tonneman, too independent for her own good, is both the target of vicious gossip... and of a killer.
