In a forgotten corner of a rain-lashed park in Amsterdam, the body of a tramp is found. The police can find no name nor any obvious cause of death. Only the scarring on his body suggests he is the latest victim of a serial killer terrorizing the city.
Detective Ronald van Hijn has just one lead: The phone number of a young Englishman. Jon Reed is summoned from London to identify the body and tell van Hijn what he can about the man he knew as Jake Colby. But Jon is determined to do much more for his mysterious friend.
Soon he's uncovering a horrific history of terror and mass murder rooted in Europe's murky past. And the killer is still on the loose.
