Ex-library because of glue stain on back end paper and library card laid in, otherwise no library markings at all. Spine a bit slanted, corners bumped, small ink(?) mark in center of front board. Jacket has small tear at base of spine, a little edge wear and rubbing. Overall, an attractive copy.

This is the author's first novel, after a couple autobiographical books concerning his experiences with Zen. Laid in is a note from another bookseller who had found this book for a customer in 1981l.
":The owner of a sleazy restaurant-cum-commune in the old quarter of Amsterdam is dead; his body hangs from a rafter, at first glance a suicide, at second a murder. The police call in Detective Grijpstra, a mild-mannered, middle-aged family man with tired feet and a bemused soul, and his partner, de Gier, a bachelor with a philosophical turn of mind who shares his modish apartment with a wayward Siamese cat and on occasion such women as are not allergic to it. The plot is as full of unexpected twists and turns as Amsterdam itself, the climax will surprise and satisfy connoisseurs of detective fiction as well as loving observers of human nature."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
