The Grijpstra and De Gier mystery series has captured a world-wide audience with its intriguing Dutch detectives and provocative cases. In The Maine Massacre, Police sergeant De Gier flies to the United States, only to find unsolved crimes lurking on that side of the ocean, too. When the Commissaris of the Amsterdam police force gets a call from his newly-widowed sister in America, he flies to the snowy village of Jameson, Maine, to comfort her. To provide help, De Gier follows him there, but soon De Gier discovers that the man's death is part of a series of mysteriously fatal "accidents." What ties the deaths together? Skidding on the icy landscape, De Gier pieces together the clues while contemplating the perplexing differences between police procedures in America and Europe. As the sinister force behind the deaths closes in on the sergeant, narrator George Guidall's performance conveys De Gier's gentle humor, quiet intelligence, and surprising karate skills.
