I had first read this Library book many years ago and was delighted to be reminded I could own it digitally. The Dutchman tells the story of the first police officer--a sheriff--in midth century Dutch Manhattan.
The Dutchman is a real person and ancestor of the Meyers. I enjoyed the Meyers' unpretentious, direct style, which allowed me to enter the book as if entering a time machine.
Clearly, I could walk the streets of what is now Battery Park and lower Manhattan, see and know the characters in the story, and become intimate with them. Of course, I always love a good murder mystery. I won't ruin the experience for you with any more details. Besides, you can get those in other far more complete reviews.
The Dutchman is the first in a series of seven books of historically accurate events intertwined with real ancestors, events, locations, etc. The Dutchman remains my favorite.
The Dutchman (Dutchman Historical Mystery, #1) by Maan Meyers
The first name is comprised of the first two initials of their names, Martin and Annette. That cleverness is what drew me to the book in the first place. One person found this helpful. Very different from what I normally read, but so interesting to step back in time to when New York got its name. I had already read The Dutchman's Dilemma and now I'm sad that this is the last of Tonneman in this series since the others feature his decedents. Her history is most likely extremely accurate. Interesting perhaps if you are from the area New York City , but the story was so slow, couldn't stay with it.
I liked their historical approach an dam looking forward to trying their new series. I hope more become available on Kindle soon.

These arthritic hands don't hold books as well as they used to. You owe yourself a real treat.
Read this first of the series- it will hook you. I enjoy history and this historical fiction was terrific. Having grown up in the NYC area, I found the historical aspects very informative.
The plot was complex but engaging. After reading this book by Maan Myeyers, I went on to read the entire series. Home What's new Latest activity Authors. Forums New posts Search forums. What's new New posts Latest activity.

Thread starter Winter Lord Start date May 27, Winter Lord Trickster in Training May 27, Joined Mar 6, Messages I need help with that name of the author and the title of a book that deals with the legendary ship The Flying Dutchman, and people traveling to alternate earths. The only thing that I really rememder is at the end, the villan gets what he is always wanted, the Flying Dutchman.
He is then told that there are no more worlds to travel to, or some such. I don't think it is The Homeward Bounders. Joined Sep 11, Messages
