's colleagues consider it of minor importance until forensic tests show that amongst the bones is the arm bone of a crime boss who recently went missin. One always wants to read whodunnits taking place at the city they live in plus have a lady detective as their main character The story unfolds uite well although at some point certain things don t make sense I liked the part of the unearthed skeletons especially the World War II part However I had problems connecting with any of the characters in the book why does everybody have to be damaged through and through especially the main one the detective Besides the hostile attitude in a way justifiable what bothered me was her lack of professionalism which apparently was there in the first book as well No reason to follow her investigations further

Essa find a skeleton in a sports bag in his left luggage locker at Amsterdam Central train station The remains date from the Second World War and Lotte. 455 StarsAnja de Jager is an undiscovered gem Her characterisation is fantastic creating very memorable and realistic characters even if they only appear in one or two scenes She also effortlessly evokes an image of Amsterdam and gives us a clear image of the setting something some of the best authors struggle to do At first I was worried because there weren t many suspects so it limited the options of who was responsible for what I read a lot of murder mysteries and often manage to figure out the killer and thought at the start I had figured it out I m glad to say I was completely off target and was pleasantly surprised by all the revelations in the conclusion of the novel I also really appreciated the introduction of Francine s grandfather because even after years of learning about WWII I never had known the repercussions it had on the children of Dutch Nazis That was eye opening for me and definitely something that made this book stand out from the other murder mysteries I have readMy one problem with this book was that the reveal of the killer seemed very anti climactic However this ended up not even being the big reveal of the novel and there was still a nice twist to it that make it easy to forgive this I also wish that some of the characters from the previous book such as Lotte s father Hans and Stefanie could have made an appearance because I remember loving them in the first book However the new characters introduced were still very compelling and interesting in their own ways so this was not an actual problem just something I personally would have loved to see I will definitely be recommending this series to as many people as possible because Anja de Jager s captivating writing style and clever story telling make all of these reads effortless I am eagerly awaiting the release of the next Lotte Meerman novel and cannot wait to see what else de Jager has in store for us
