Amsterdam is bursting at the seams and the police are out in force, struggling to manage the crowds. Brigadier Pieter Vos is on duty with his young assistant, Laura Bakker, when the first grenade hits. In the chaos a young girl wearing a pink jacket is kidnapped. But she isn't the daughter of an Amsterdam aristocrat as the terrorists first thought. What is the life of one immigrant child worth in the greater political game emerging?

Even better than The Doll's House!
It has a much better storyline than 'The Doll's House' but it just flowed on from the first book. The characters are really well realised and felt like old friends already.
I know it's obvious but Pieter Vos is my favourite character. He is very intriguing and you really care about him.
He is my equal favourite narrator and could not tell a story badly if he tried!
It was indeed! I actually went through it very quickly.
I am looking forward to more in this Amsterdam series. I think David Hewson is on to a real winner here. I also like the setting as I know Amsterdam relatively well and I think he captures the atmosphere well.

Another great story starring Amsterdam
