This is the first van de Wetering police procedural I've read, and I was generally favorably impressed. The story takes two of Amsterdam's finest to NYC to track down the fate of a Dutch national who's been found dead and partially consumed by wildlife in Central Park.Van de Wetering's style is quirky and entertaining, and his characters memorable. My only hesitation is that it's very light stuff.
