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 Ki 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!
plot keeps you lol and rofl from beginning to end. We all need a little laughter in our lives, and this novel provides it for those not faint of heart. Erotic, yes, it takes you to the edge without letting you (or the ludicrous characters) fall off the edge. Explicit,yes, but comedy keeps the tone light and delicious. Bertram is a great throwback to a different time and place that just happens to fit, in his odd little way, into our modern do-it-all, say-it-all world. I hope more lively jaunts are planned the future.
Interspersed with hilarious descriptions of Bertie and Trudie’s steamy sex life and forays into their gastronomic preferences, this is a hugely funny read. There were several laugh out loud moments when Bertie had various mishaps which sent him buck-naked flying off the balcony into the canal below, once with a butt plug inserted in a part of his anatomy, and each time being fished out by two off-duty police officers.
This books scores on a couple of age issues too. One being that people in their 60s can and do have very active and imaginative sex lives and the second that they’re not on the shelf, past their sell-by date. In other words, they are still worthy contributors to society!
William Frederick obviously knows his way around the streets and canals of Amsterdam and maybe even how the Dutch Secret Service operates. Either that, or he’s actually been a spy and is now writing about his sex-ploits.
I really enjoyed this story. At times whimsical, other times hugely farcical with some really hilarious comedic scenes, William Frederick is a brilliant story teller and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
