Summary

Twenty-two-year-old Annie Schrijver works in the picturesque Albert Cuyp flower market. But then she goes missing, only to be found barely alive, tied to a stone angel in a graveyard. But Annie seems to have been the lucky one, as a body is found nearby.

Detective Pieter Vos knows that if he is to outwit the murderer, he will need to employ everything he has to avert a greater tragedy.

Love this series

I really love this series I enjoy the characters especially Laura Bakker she works so well with Pieter Voss I like that its in Amsterdam with the bikes and trams and canals, I enjoy the Rome series but this one even more so. And of course with one of the best narrators out there it makes a great team Hewson and Reichlin, can't wait until the next book is written and released.

Twists and turns abound

What does Saul Reichlin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Saul Reichlin is outstanding as always. The book is fast paced and interesting. Highly recommended

Sleep Baby Sleep was an enjoyable listen

When I first started listening to this I thought it was slightly derivative of silence of the lambs, and indeed in some ways it was. However I got into it and it was very well read.

The characters were sympathetic and I enjoyed the side stories, especially the one about the Syrian refugees. It’s certainly made me want to keep listening and I would recommend it although it ended up being very complex by the end and I had to listen to you in a couple of times to figure out exactly what was going on.

Never Made It To The End

Not for me. I tried to like the narrator, but his almost Scots lilt when it is a Dutch book grated. The story dragged and I had no empathy with the main character. He just annoyed me. Stuck with it for about two thirds the way through. But decided it was all around just not very good. I rarely give a bad review but I'm afraid this one deserves it in my view

good procedural noir

despite a number of very standard elements, a good thrilling listen, against a convincing Dutch background. well performed with a well defined array of characters and a decent plot. most enjoyable in its own grim way.

A master story teller and a master narrator!

When you combine a master story teller and a master narrator the result is enthralling. David Hewson and Saul Reichlin deliver another genuine page turner in the Pieter Vos series. Set in Netherlands, this story involves multiple murders, dates rapes and non stop mystery, suspense and intrigue at various levels. With endearing characters, multiple story lines and surprises this is another top tier effort from a master story teller and master narrator.
