Maan Meyers is the pseudonym for the husband/wife team of Martin and Annette Meyers writing together. Annette Meyers has had many years of experience working on Wall Street, and was assistant to Broadway director/producer Hal Prince for sixteen years. Martin Meyers was an actor who appeared on Broadway and in film and television. Together and individually, they have written mystery short stories and novels. Annette resides in New York City. THE CRITICS LOVE THE HISTORICAL MYSTERIES OF MAAN MEYERS "OUTSTANDING.” —Rendezvous "PART FICTION, PART FACT, AND WHOLLY ENTERTAINING... VIVIDLY TRUE TO ITS PERIOD." —Publishers Weekly “AN EXCITING TALE OF MYSTERY, HISTORY, AND ROMANCE, INDEED A WONDERFUL COMBINATION.” —Romantic TimesFrom Publishers Weekly:
Set in New York City in 1899, the seventh Dutchman historical mystery (after 1997's The Lucifer Contract) from the pseudonymous Meyers (the husband-wife writing team of Martin and Annette Meyers) offers plenty of rich period detail, from the founding of the Automobile Club of America to the building of the new subway system, but the storytelling falls short of the standard set by, say, Caleb Carr or Daniel Stashower. John Dutch Tonneman, of the NYPD's two-man Commissioner's Squad, investigates a series of stabbing murders, whose victims include Delia Swann, a prostitute who was last seen alive by Esther Breslau, a photographer, who happens to be the detective's love interest. The politically progressive Breslau has begun a project to photograph streetwalkers, but it's unclear whether her encounter with the victim was mere coincidence. Those readers anticipating a whodunit may be disappointed to learn the killer's identity and motivation early on. (Oct.)
