Lives Lost, Paperback Book

Description

The second in the atmospheric Amsterdam-set crime series, which combines the city's old-world charm with contemporary issues of corruption, immigration and crime. A minute can make all the difference...Pieter Posthumus is enjoying a quiet drink in his favourite bar when the screaming starts.

A minute later, the owner of the guesthouse next door rushes in: one of her tenants has been murdered.

Marloes, the guesthouse owner, is an odd but kind soul.

Posthumus cannot believe it when she is arrested - for both her tenant Zig's murder and another death years before.

He knows there are questions unanswered: what is the link between the two cases?

Why are people so keen to think Marloes is guilty? And why did Zig paint just one picture every year - a copy of a Dutch master, but with one peculiar twist?

As his investigation progresses, he comes to see that a few minutes can mean all the difference in the world: between saving a life and taking one; between innocence and guilt. And that sometimes asking questions leads to a truth that's hard to bear.
