The Hollow-Eyed Angel(1996)
(Book 13 in the Grijpstra-de Gier Mysteries series)
A novel by Janwillem van de Wetering
"To sin or not to have sinned, that is the question" raised by the head of Amsterdam's Murder Brigade in this 13th installment of the series by Janwillem van de Wetering. A Buddhist mystic, the Murder Brigades leader is off to New York with an underling, the nihilist Sergeant de Gier, to solve the murder of a countryman who dies under horrible conditions in Central Park. Like its 12 predecessors, this is a Zen mystery, and simple questions of guilt and innocence sometimes take a back seat to deeper philosophical musings.
