A Death in Rembrandt Square

I love destination crime, and Amsterdam is the setting for Anja de Jager’s contemporary police procedural series featuring detective Lotte Meerman as our damaged and driven protagonist.

Not only is this a gripping police procedural, joint star of the book together with Lotte is Amsterdam itself – from its canals, cobbles and waterways, to the way each season changes the vibe of the city.  And in this book it’s autumn – so perfect for our leaf-falling, leaden-skied darkening days now . . . Although now living in London, Amsterdam-born Anja returns frequently and it’s clear from reading her that she really knows and gets under the skin of the city where she was born. So if you haven’t any foreign city breaks planned, you can at least escape to one of the loveliest and most exciting cities in Europe, courtesy of a Friday Read!
