Jim Beaver asked about Janwillem Van der Wetering a few days back. I love his novels but they're not hardboiled. If you know the slightest bit about Zen, you'll find them wonderfully entertaining. Van der Wetering spent more than a little time in Zen monasteries, in Japan and in Maine. And it shows in his characters. His later books are not set in Holland but in Maine, where he now lives. Read him and enjoy, but don't expect him to be hardboiled. Frank Denton
