Like its predecessor, this issue examines its subject in depth, as deep as 1889, in this case, the year of Maarten Maarten's Black Box Murder. It also offers a wrap-up of Web sites, publishers and publications key to tracking crime writing in the Netherlands. It's far more than just a list of names, in other words, and somene ought to hand Bob Cornwell and his Crime Time colleagues an award for this absorbing, educational entertaining effort.
Dankuwel, mijnheren Cornwell, Charles den Tex en Jos van Cann!
Switzerland is up next in the series, to be followed by Italy, Spain and Denmark.
