This latest installment of the internationally popular Inspector DeKok series finds the gray sleuth dealing with a most gruesome murder. The oldest of the four men turned to DeKok, "You're from homicide?" DeKok nodded. The seasoned inspector wiped the raindrops from his face, bent down gingerly, and carefully lifted a corner of the canvas. Slowly the head became visible: a severed girl's head. DeKok felt the blood drain from his face, his stomach turning into an icy cold pit. "Is that all you found?" he asked. "A little farther, " the man answered with sad disbelief, "is the rest." Spread out among the dirt and refuse were the remaining parts of the body: the arms, the long, slender legs, and the petite torso. There was no clothing. DeKok faces death as an inevitable part of life, but when things turn this macabre, it's a hard reality to stomach

13 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in Dutch and English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Death," observes DeKok, "is entitled to our respect. Especially when it manifests itself in a violent manner." The phenomenon of sudden death has long intrigued Inspector DeKok. From the moment he confronted his first corpse, at the beginning of a very long career, he knew it was never going to get any easier. The numbness will never set in, even after solving many mysteries, bringing to light many dark dealings and unraveling many a puzzle. For DeKok, death will always remain an enigma. Mustering his decorated experience and reverence for the dead once more, a triple murder in the Amsterdam Concert Gebouw has DeKok unveiling the truth behind two dead ex-junkies and their housekeeper. Dekok and Murder By Melody is the second new release by Speck in the celebrated Baantjer series. With an emphasis on the best possible translations, editorial consistency and attractive cover art, this sleek series will prove that DeKok can claim success equal to that achieved in Europe, where he is on a par with Maigret and Poirot.

A former detective inspector of the Amsterdam police, his fictional characters reflect the depth and personality of individuals encountered during his 38-year career in law enforcement. He was recently knighted by the Dutch monarchy
