A Cold Death in Amsterdam
By Anja De Jager
When it’s baking hot, this is the perfect read. Cold and chilly it will take you the mind of tragedy from a different perspective. You’ll be right alongside Lotte as she makes well-intentioned yet completely flawed moral decisions. What’s intrinsically more powerful though, is seeing the ramifications.
A Cold Death In Amsterdam is a smart and engaging police procedural about a Dutch detective struggling to come to terms with her past.
Set in Amsterdam, the novel introduces Lotte Meerman, a Cold Case detective still recovering from the emotional devastation of her previous investigation. A tip-off leads Lotte to an unresolved ten-year-old murder case in which her father was the lead detective. When she discovers irregularities surrounding the original investigation that make him a suspect, she decides to cover for him. She doesn’t tell her boss about the family connection and jeopardises her career by hiding evidence. Now she has to find the real murderer before her acts are discovered, otherwise her father will go to jail and she will lose her job, the one thing in life she still takes pride in . . .
