Nicolas Freeling (born Nicolas Davidson; 3 March 1927 – 20 July 2003), was a British crime novelist, best known as the author of the "Van der Valk" series of detective novels. A television series based on the character was produced for the British ITV network by Thames Television during the 1970s, and revived in the 1990s. Freeling was born in London, but travelled widely, and ended his life at his long-standing home at Grandfontaine to the west of Strasbourg.

Cold Iron is a triumph for Nicolas Freeling, a masterwork not to be missed - Stanley Ellin. Freeling demands much from his readers with his sharp, abbreviated and post-modernistic lexicon-twisting style, but Castang, his provincial French detective demands even more, keeping up with his thoughts, as well as some understanding in dealing with his judgements and biases. Running beneath the text is a strong current of animosity and intolerance; I've always suspected the French Revolution was an utter failure and the Reign of Terror nothing more than a license to murder, and Freeling's novel makes me think I might be right. This is a crime novel.

It was not a very important case. No crime had been committed. Van der Valk is intrigued. It isn't everyday that a quiet housewife is machine gunned down at lunchtime in a block of flats. But the body isn't discovered until hours later, and by that time, the killer's trail is already getting cold. Van der Valk is left with more than one problem posed by the death of Esther Marx. For not only does she leave behind her a tide of mystery, but also a young daughter, in desperate need of care.

A Henri Castang Mystery - A rich aristocrat is found murdered and Henri Castang is called in to investigate. What he reveals is a startling series of discoveries. The murdered woman, Madame Lecat kept herself occupied with drink, cocaine and affairs of the heart. But what is more shocking is the corruption Castang finds swarming beneath the veneer of high society.

Freeling demands much from his readers with his sharp, abbreviated and post-modernistic lexicon-twisting style, but Castang, his provincial French detective demands even more, keeping up with his thoughts, as well as some understanding in dealing with his judgements and biases. Running beneath the text is a strong current of animosity and intolerance; I've always suspected the French Revolution was an utter failure and the Reign of Terror nothing more than a license to murder, and Freeling's novel makes me think I might be right. This is a crime novel. How could it not be with the wife of a millionaire murdered and police inspectors and judges scurrying everywhere? But it's also a caste novel, with the police toadying before wealth and rank, a judge of instruction (part of the French legal system) bitter about her lowly origins and carrying a shoulder-chip bigger than the Eiffel Tower, and a bevy of borderline incompetent inspectors under Castang who investigate the murder despite feelings that she probably deserved to die anyway because she was rich. And then there is a strong dose of the usual Gallic inferiority complex towards the English (and the world) that manifests itself as studied cosmopolitanism and sophistication. Still, it's a well-written book, nicely plotted, with complex characters who keep the action moving forward. Perhaps not a book for crime fiction fans uncomfortable with non-traditional storytelling techniques, but fine for all other readers.

I prefer Nicolas Freeling’s Henri Castang novels to his Van der Valke novels. Castang’s domestic situation is more dense and his location in a provincial French city, rather than in Amsterdam, realises the potential of life away from the centre – in Castang’s case the centre of police-life in Paris. In “Cold Iron”, Castang has moved from a significant provincial city to a smaller northern city, more a town, where he is confronted by regional hierarchies and its history, particularly that in two World Wars.

Freeling’s style is curious and unusual for a genre novel: there is the occasional absence of pronouns and short, even truncated sentences, but, perhaps more unusual, is the realisation that something has happened without being actually described.
