The Devil's Playground

Author(s): Stav Sherez


When the body of a tramp, Jake Colby, is found in a secluded Amsterdam park, Dutch police detective Ronald Van Hijn believes that this is the ninth victim of the serial killer stalking the city. Yet, all previous victims were young, female and beautiful. What could have made the killer change his MO?

On the corpse Van Hijn finds contact details for Jon Reed, an Englishman who befriended Jake in London shortly before the murder. Van Hijn summons Jon to Amsterdam to identify the body - and so sets him on his own journey of discovery.

But was Jake really a tramp? What revelation about his identity that led him to life on the streets? And did his fate lie not in the hands of a serial killer - but in the horror of the Holocaust death camps some sixty years before . . . ?
