Item description for Because of the Cats (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) (Inspector Van Der Valk Mysteries) by Nicolas Freeling...

Bloemendaal aan Zee, that smugly prosperous little seaside town, has more television sets per capita than anywhere else in Holland. Its houses are uniformly tidy and sparkling clean. Even its drunks are polite. But there's something very wrong with the kids. The most teenagers have formed a gang that is preying, with increasing viciousness, on nearby Amsterdam - Inspector Van der Valk's patch. Van der Valk has no love for chilly, yuppified Bloemendaal. But in his curiosity is as voracious as his appetite for good food. And while his colleagues just want the attacks stopped, Van der Valk can't help asking what it is about the town that has turned Bloemendaal's children into monsters. NO CATS ARE HARMED ANYWHERE IN THE BOOK.

Reviews - What do customers think about Because of the Cats (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) (Inspector Van Der Valk Mysteries)?

because of the cats is great  May 20, 2008
As someone who visits Amsterdam fairly often, this is a great way to soothe my homesickness for a place I truly love. Also a pretty damn good mystery!
Another sterling book by Freeling  Jan 12, 2003
Freeling's second novel, published in 1963, is up to the standards of his best books (King of a Rainy Country, Gun Before Butter, etc.). Well-written and well-conceived, Freeling remains one of my all-time favorite mystery writers.

In this book, Van der Valk uncovers the very unlikely fact of a youth gang from the rich town of Bloemendaal. These teenagers are carrying out particularly vicious robberies in Amsterdam and leave their victim with only the mysterious words "the cats won't like it." To solve this particular mystery, Van Der Valk needs to get beneath the skin of a seemingly sleepy Dutch town to get at the rot that lies beneath.

If you're a fan of Simenon or Durrenmatt, you should consider trying Nicolas Freeling.
