The Square of Revenge

Betrayal. The first novel by Pieter Aspe to feature Belgian detective Pieter Van In is titled, The Square of Revenge. I started reading this series with the second installment translated into English titled, The Midas Murders, and I was hooked. Readers who enjoy character-driven crime fiction should consider reading this novel and the series. The action starts with an unusual burglary of a family owned jewelry store. Van In arrives on the scene and meets an attractive deputy prosecutor, Hannelore Martens. Their interplay provides a lot of the pleasure to readers of this book. Something strange is happening, and the well-connected paterfamilias wants the burglary investigation to die a quiet death. Instead, Van In and Hannelore pursue it, and when a kidnapping in the family increases attention, they focus all their efforts on bringing the case to a satisfactory conclusion. This is a story of family betrayal and the revenge that serves as a type of justice for what happened in the past. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Square of Revenge from
