Janwillem van de Wetering's fourteenth Amsterdam Cops novel finds Grijpstra, de Gier, and the commissaris blackmailed into investigating the mysterious hijacking of a supertanker's entire cargo. The adventure takes them to Key West and to the former Dutch colonies of Aruba and St. Eustatius in search of the missing oil and the villains who have killed more than once to protect their loot.
