BE THE FIRST TO KNOW
Despite his womanizing, he is an avowed bachelor, and most dedicated to his cats. He is a dreamer and deep thinker, with discursive pondering about "the void," Zen, and life. A native of Rotterdam , de Gier is, like Grijpstra, an amateur musician. He often carries a small flute, and in odd moments he and Grijpstra improvise together in their office, where Grijpstra has his set of drums.
The commissaris, small, elderly, and often nearly incapacitated by chronic rheumatism, supervises the partners' field investigations. Intelligent and broadly experienced, he often provides key insights into his juniors' cases, not to mention insightful philosophical commentary. A Frisian like Grijpstra, the commissaris is fond of jenever and small cigars; only his first name, Jan, is ever given. Grijpstra, de Gier, and the commissaris first appeared in the novel Outsider in Amsterdam. The novels in internal chronological order are as follows:.

The Corpse on the Dike by Janwillem van de Wetering
Minor edgewear to covers. This Book appears to be unread. The author's detailed account of his extensive criminal operations with the Kray firm during the Sixties culminating in a year life sentence in Britain's top security prisons for his involvement in Reggie Kray's murder of Jack "The Hat" McVitie. He had a unique close-up view of their reign of terror in an underworld of unashamed evil. Tony Lambrianou knew the whole story - and he served 15 years for his part in it.
Inside The Firm is the book Tony Lambrianou has written to exorcise the ghosts of his violent career with the Krays - and the horrors of his subsequent years in top security prisons. An account more detailed, more impartial and more terrifying than the Krays themselves could ever reveal. This book is a brutally honest confession from a gangster determined to turn his back on his criminal past.
