About the Author:

Janwillem van de Wetering (1931–2008) was born and raised in Rotterdam, but lived most recently in Surry, Maine. He served as a member of the Amsterdam Special Constabulary and was once a Zen Buddhist monk. He is renowned for his detective fiction, including Outsider in Amsterdam; The Corpse on the Dike; the short story collection The Sergeant’s Cat; The Maine Massacre, which garnered him the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière; and ten other books in the Amsterdam Cops series.

Review:

Praise for The Japanese Corpse

“[Van de Wetering] has a genuine gift for characterization . . . The villains are the yakuza, Japan’s Mafia, who of course have their own extralegal culture with its warriors, taboos, codes, and pretty girls. The author obviously knows the methods of his florid villains very well.”
TIME

“What atmosphere! Elegant! Satisfying!”
The Baltimore Sun

“The ending is slambang!”
—Library Journal
