"When the strangely scarred body of a tramp is discovered in a secluded Amsterdam park, Dutch police detective Ronald Van Hijn believes that this may be another victim of the serial killer currently terrorizing the city. On the corpse Van Hijn finds contact details for Jon Reed, who identifies the victim as Jake Colby, a stranger he took off the streets and into his London home a few weeks before. Yet it soon becomes clear that Jon didn't choose Jake - Jake chose Jon - and the longer he stays in Amsterdam the more Jon needs to uncover the truth. Was Jake really a tramp? And what revelation about his identity led him to a life on the streets? As Jon's new girlfriend introduces him to the seedier side of Amsterdam, he and Van Hijn begin to see connections between the recent murders and the appearance of alleged Holocaust footage on an illegal internet auction site. Could Jake's death be the key to it all? And did his fate lie not in the hands of a serial killer - but in the horror of the death camps sixty years earlier?"--BOOK JACKET.
