Historian[edit]

Decock began his career as a historian. He published articles on the “Dame blanche”, a secret network in the First World War, and a biography of Gabrielle Petit, a Belgian heroine in that war.

Luxembourg[edit]

In 1985, Decock settled in Luxembourg as a computer scientist and financial adviser. He illustrated some publications and drew comics, particularly in the child newspaper “Zack.”

His first novel, Toccata, is similar to The Da Vinci Code, with an original composition of Bach playing a central role. The story is set in Luxembourg and in Baden-Württemberg. In 2008 Toccata received the “Reader prize of the Greater Region” (Prix des lecteurs de la Grande-région).

His second novel, De Profundis, sets the young Luxembourg policeman João Da Costa Rebelo after a serial killer.
