Review:

"One of the masters of the mystery form." Los Angeles Times

Synopsis:

Housebreakers have discovered the corpse of Amsterdam bank director Martin Ijsbreker. The investigating officer determines that it was suicide and closes the case. But the commissaris suspects his boyhood nemesis, his evil cousin Willem Fernandus, a major shareholder in the dead man's bank, of having caused the death.

Someone will die.

In an attempt to solve the mysterious death of a wealthy banker, the Amsterdam Murder Brigade finds itself outside the limits of the law, using computer-based espionage and the risky influence of friends.
