A.C. Baantjer Synopsis: DeKok and the Sorrowing Tomcat by A.C. Baantjer is book 4 in the Inspector DeKok series. On the sand dunes that protect the lowlands of the Netherlands, an early morning jogger makes a gruesome discovery – the body of a man with a dagger protruding from his back. The corpse of Peter Geffel, better known as “Cunning” Pete, is identified, but the local police cannot find any clues. When the call goes out to notify other jurisdictions of the discovery, Homicide Detective DeKok feels drawn to the case because he knew the victim. Along with his inseparable sidekick Vledder, DeKok searches the city of Amsterdam for answers. Soon there is another corpse and, unlikely as it may seem, the killing of Cunning Pete is connected to a killing in higher social circles.
