Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As has been her habit since the death of her husband, Mrs. Hasbergen does nightly rounds in the large office building where she resides. Her husband had been the building superintendent, and an apartment on the top floor came with the job. Having picked up some of her late husband's duties, the president of the company has let her stay in the apartment.

During one of her nightly tours, she encounters Mr. Vredenburg, President of the Dredging Company, in the boardroom. Sitting in his large chair at the head of the table, she hastily walks up to him. To her horror, she finds him dead.

With the switchboard closed at night, Mrs. Hasbergen rushes up to her apartment to call someone, but who? The doctor? The police? Deciding it better to return to the boardroom to examine what exactly happened to Mr. Vredenburg, she finds the man, the dead man, gone.

Wrought with worry and confusion, Mrs. Hasbergen learns from one of the secretaries that Mr. Vredenburg has left for a vacation in the Bahamas. Utterly dumbfounded, she can stand the burden of the night no longer and turns to Inspector DeKok, asking: "What happened to Mr. Vredenburg?"

Baantjeris the most widely read author in the Netherlands. A former Detective Inspector of the Amsterdam Police, his fictional characters reflect the depth and personality of individuals encountered during his thirty-eight year career in law enforcement. He was recently knighted by the Dutch monarchy.

Synopsis:

A missing corpse turns out to be quite a variation on murder for Inspector DeKok.

Synopsis:

Rockabilly endures, lives, and thrives due to the great devotion that the members of this culture lay at its cuffed-dungaree-pearl-buttoned-cardigan-sweater altar.

Defined in the 1950s, evolving over the decades, rockabilly has slipped into various cultural niches and displayed its musical and fashionable wares on many a group from purist to psychobilly. Most recently disaffected punks, Japanese hipsters, and Latino youth make up the largest growing contingency. And there’s no denying the smooth crossover with the neo-country scene.

With more than 100 photos and illustrations, Rockabilly revels in revealing the history, music, conventions, dress, hangouts, and overall modern lifestyle of this timeless movement. It is a cinch to see why so many claim rockabilly as their cultural calling.

Kurt Ohlen is a rockabilly musician, DJ, promoter and record company owner (Big-K Productions). He lives, teaches and rocks in Denver, Colorado with his wife and children.

Eric Peterson is a full-time writer. He has numerous books to his credit and writes regularly for magazines, journals and newspapers on a variety of subjects including music, trends, travel and business.
