Press on Guilty Gold:

Janssen writes skilfully and swiftly, maintaining the suspense. Janssen has surpassed himself and his books so far. **** – VN Detective & Thrillergids

Guilty Gold is a successful combination of contemporary action, the experiences of a partly fictitious head of De Nederlandsche Bank during the war and historical facts. A book with verve, from which readers can learn a great deal. – NRC Handelsblad
