Bloemendaal aan Zee, that smugly prosperous little seaside town, has more television sets per capita than anywhere else in Holland. Even its drunks are polite, its houses uniformly tidy and sparkling clean.But theres something very wrong with the kids. The most popular teenagers have formed a gang that is preying, with increasing viciousness, on nearby Amsterdam -- Inspector Van der Valks patch. Van der Valk has no love for chilly, yuppified Bloemendaal. But his curiosity is as voracious as his appetite for good food. And while his colleagues just want the attacks stopped, Van der Valk cant help asking what it is about the town that has turned Bloemendaals children into monsters. "Freeling can only be compared to Simenon at his very best New York Times One of the most gifted and original writers of crime fiction The Weekly Standard Evocative and stunning Library Journal
