BOOK REVIEW:
DEKOK AND THE DEAD HARLEQUIN
BY A.C. BAANTJER

We hope you enjoy this book review by Patricia Reid.





DeKok has his own unique way of investigating and an even more unique way of seeing that justice is done. DeKok receives a letter from Pierre Brassel, a man that DeKok discovers is a very successful businessman. The letter requests a meeting so that Brassel can go over some of the details of the murder.

The meeting is held and a murder is committed at exactly the same time as the meeting at a hotel in the city. Brassel knows the time, the place and the details but could not have committed the crime since it was at that exact time that Brassel was meeting with DeKok and his assistant Inspector Vladder.

On arriving at the murder scene DeKok finds that the corpse has been arranged to resemble a harlequin or mannequin. Vladder wants to immediately arrest Brassel but there is nothing to connect him to the murder except the knowledge revealed at the meeting.

Once again DeKok takes the reader on an adventure through the streets of Holland. Another man dies in the same hotel but DeKok isnít fast enough to prevent this death. DeKokís methods are unorthodox and his thinking is unusual but eventually he does discover how the murders occurred, as well as the guilty party, and Brasselís role in the crime. Another DeKok mystery not to be missed by his fans.
