A Cold Case in Amsterdam Central Summary

A Cold Case in Amsterdam Central by Anja de Jager

Detective Lotte Meerman is convinced the death of Frank Stapel, a painter and decorator, isn't an accident after she and his widow Tessa find a skeleton in a sports bag in his left luggage locker at Amsterdam Central train station.

The remains date from the Second World War and Lotte's colleagues consider it of minor importance . . . until forensic tests show that amongst the bones is the arm bone of a crime boss who recently went missing.

A Cold Case in Amsterdam Central Reviews

A harrowing but absorbing read * Daily Mail *
[Meerman's] painstaking police work is undermined by emotional turmoil in a novel brilliantly evoking the isolation of a woman with an unbearable weight on her conscience * The Sunday Times on A Cold Death in Amsterdam *
The book succeeds as a portrait of both a city and, in its heroine, a delightfully dysfunctional personality * Sunday Express on A Cold Death in Amsterdam *
Anja de Jager's debut novel is a tightly written, cleverly plotted whodunit that keeps the reader guessing almost to the last page * Irish Examiner on A Cold Death in Amsterdam *
An impressive debut . . . De Jager is as good on dodgy family relations as she is on police procedure * The Times on A Cold Death in Amsterdam *
De Jager manages to circumvent the overfamiliar. The evocation of a bitterly cold Amsterdam is worthy of Nicholas Freeling's Van der Valk books * The Independent on A Cold Death in Amsterdam *
Complete with a strong and respectable female protagonist, Anja de Jager presents a thrilling whodunit that is bound to ensure the admiration of any reader. Welcome to Amsterdam. * W24 *
