KIRKUS REVIEW

Love in Amsterdam and Because of the Cats established an audience for the Dutch Inspector Van der Val whose fictional relative is surely Simenon's Maigret. Working with the freedom afforded continental police, he is a combination detective/judge/philosopher. His growing readership will not be disappointed in this story of the two lives led by one man, the girl he wanted for one of them and his murder. The detection is top drawer and the questions of relative guilt and effective punishment are classic in their simplicity of statement and complexity of implications.
