From the Publisher:
Amsterdam is normally sedate but today there is a riot in Newmarket Square. Constables have blocked access to the adjoining Straight Tree Ditch Road all day. When the body of the 'King' of the local street market is found murdered in a room in his house on that street, there are only two suspects: his sister or the upstairs border. But who was it?
