so, I finished the first tale, called 'The Deadly Egg'. kind of weird to happen upon such a story just now, because...well, anyway, a woman gets poisoned from a chocolate Easter egg that may have been laced with parathion, or arsenic. I've also been introduced to van de Wetering's two detectives, Grijpstra and de Gier, who seem like they can keep me entertained throughout these stories, plus the novel I have handy - call me optimistic - titled The Mind-Murders, which was a title I was not able to resist.
'The Deadly Egg' was fun, but let's see if it can be topped. lots of stories to go!
