Summary
"Walter Eekhaut, a veteran of the Belgian police force who has a problem with authority, has been dispatched to Amsterdam to aid in investigating the activities of a well-connected Russian oligarch, with ties to Putin. Some of the Russian's business is legitimate, but some may well not be. Seconded to Chief Superintendent Alexandra Dewaal of the Dutch security service, he begins to learn about the city's shady underside. Eekhaut is at once pulled into another case, the murder of a young leftist dissident, alleged to have stolen a sensitive list from the Amsterdam offices of an ultra-right-wing political party-a list with the names of secret donors. The hunt for the killer leads to a knot of black money interests and illegal dealings that pit the Russian mob and Dutch politicians and business leaders against the police and anyone else who tries to get in their way"--Jacket flap
