From the pen of a newcomer, this is a seriously superior piece of work that will certainly find an enthusiastic audience in the higher reaches of crime literature.

They say, 'write about what you know' and it's obvious that Tarbet knows his way around the murky world of Amsterdam. This is a book full of great characters, each rounded and possessed of depth. It shows real wit and has enough twists and turns to satisfy readers. Munro is a new cop on the scene and it's evident that there will shortly be an audience clamouring for more tales of this damaged but all too human police inspector.m

A triumph!

I loved everything about this book - the setting, the storyline, the characters and the humour. Munro and Remco make a great pairing, both really likeable characters and each time I decided I knew where the plot was heading it took another twist and left me wondering again. Great read, can't wait for the next book!

Jings! What a great first book. I came to it thinking it might be just another formulaic policier of the hundreds published regularly but much to my delight, not only are the characters interesting in themselves (with hints at backstories that hopefully will play out in the series) but also in the way they interact with each other. They talk to each other (and themselves sometimes) like people actually do and not like plot-machine "book characters" sometimes do. I especially like the banter between Munro and Remco. Its instantly recognisable (if you're a Glaswegian) and funny - at least four "laugh-out-loud"s, quite a few "warm smiles" and a couple of "sagely nodding my head''s". The plot plays itself out neatly and credibly with a few neat sidesteps as you follow Munro's journey across a city that the author clearly knows well and loves. Thoroughly enjoyable stuff. Dark enough for interest and human enough to engage you...
Oh, ...and I knew that dog and Alexander has captured him just fine!

Every so often you stumble across a new author with an interesting plotline and give it a go only for it to be disappointing. This is not the case with Mokum which is a very assured novel with a gripping plot that kept me in full "just another chapter" mode until the end. The plot starts with a dead body being pulled out the water - apparently a real hazard in Amsterdam where drunks topple over and drown whilst trying to relieve themselves - and moves smartly on to a double murder in a seedy peep show. I don't want to say more in case I give anything away but I admire the way Mr Tarbet sets up his potential series from the start in a very clever bit of writing. Munro and Remco are a great double act - friends as well as colleagues - and have some great lines. In fact, you feel at home with them and their friends almost from the start and it adds to the pleasure of reading the book. I spotted a couple of editing mistakes (eg knave instead of nave) but nothing too serious and I think that is the only criticism I have so I can wholeheartedly recommend this book as a great read.

A wonderfully put together romp through the vividly described streets of Amsterdam that, as previous reviews state, bring a very human and relatable aspect to the reader. This well thought out plot keeps you guessing all the way through and laughing out loud at many point as well. The gem lies in the depth of the characters and more so in the subtle interactions between them.

Very much ooking forward to the next installment.

A very enjoyable debut novel - a gritty and interesting plotline, well developed characters and a great setting. Amsterdam's darker side is sensitively counter-balanced with some lighter moments and those involving Whisky the retriever add a lovely humorous touch....pleased to find there's more in the pipeline from Mr Tarbet and DCI Munro.

This book is a real "page turner" The unexpected twists and turns, the characters drawn so vividly and the weaving of the story through Amsterdam. His descriptions brought the characters and the city alive.
This was an excellent introduction to DCI Munro, and I am looking forward to the next encounter in the Shadowmaker.

A well thought out detective story! Mokum, kept me on the edge of my seat. Loved the characters, Munro & Remco!
Just when you thought the case was solved along comes another surprise! Lots of interesting facts about Amsterdam thrown in.
Now looking forward to reading THE SHADOWMAKER.
