It would be hard to categorize this book – a mystery, a sexy romp, a comedy – all would apply! The author has a wonderful way of describing hilarious situations, and on more than one occasion I choked on my morning coffee while reading it. Bertram (a quasi secret agent) is a lovable, bumbling character who is loyal to the very end to his one true love, Gertrude. After years apart, they finally get together for a rendezvous in Amsterdam. Things start out normal enough, but the get-together quickly goes off the rails. The couple becomes embroiled in an investigation with the local police department, which brings them into contact with characters that have names like Ms. Ku Chi Choo (insert laughing snort), Schapenvlees Dolk (Google it), and too many more to mention. When they aren’t operating as undercover agents, they are enjoying plenty of tasty, local fare, a spliff or two, and massages.I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as well as the thoughtful footnotes the author has provided for those of us who don’t speak fluent dutch, nor speak UK slang. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a great round of belly laughs!
