DeKok and the Death of A ClowneBook - 2016
While investigating a high-stakes jewel theft, Inspector DeKok is called to check out the death of a clown found floating in a raft down the canal, an enormous knife protruding from its back. Without the slightest trace, a unique, antique jewel collection disappears from a house along the Gentlemen's Canal. As DeKok begins the investigation, his assistant, Vledder, receives a call regarding a dead clown at the foot of Crier's Tower. The connection of the crimes initially eludes him, but DeKok's profession, his calling, pushes him toward the answer. DeKok and the Death of a Clown is the third new release by Speck in the celebrated Baantjer series. With an emphasis on the best possible translations, editorial consistency, and attractive cover art, this sleek series will prove that DeKok can claim success equal to that achieved in Europe, where he is on a par with Maigret and Poirot.
