"[Van de Wetering's] odd-angled novels more and more resemble the sort of thing Simenon might have done if Albert Camus or Kobo Abe had sublet his skull. They make a sinister music as they seek the true law. They are quite wonderful, and The Mind Murders . . . [is] one of his best."
—John Leonard, The New York Times
“Original, subtle, sophisticated and graceful.”
—Los Angeles Times
“A superlative mystery writer.”
“Well worth adding to your collection . . . [Van de Wetering’s] impish wit, serene storytelling and serene mind have been praised on both sides of the Atlantic.”
—The Chicago Tribune
“[A] unique atmospheric mix of police procedure, quirky characters, and Zen outlook.”
—The Boston Globe
