While investigating a high-stakes jewel theft, Inspector DeKok is called to check out the death of a clown found floating in a raft down the canal, an enormous knife protruding from its back. Without the slightest trace, a unique, antique jewel collection disappears from a house along the Gentlemen's Canal. As DeKok begins the investigation, his assistant, Vledder, receives a call regarding a dead clown at the foot of Crier's Tower.

"Death," observes DeKok, "is entitled to our respect. Especially when it manifests itself in a violent manner." The phenomenon of sudden death has long intrigued Inspector DeKok. From the moment he confronted his first corpse, at the beginning of a very long career, he knew it was never going to get any easier. The numbness will never set in, even after solving many mysteries, bringing to light many dark dealings and unraveling many a puzzle. For DeKok, death will always remain an enigma. Mustering his decorated experience and reverence for the dead once more, a triple murder in the Ams

"Inspector DeKok and his partner Vledder are ordered to protect the eccentric Manfred Nettelhorst's art treasures, exhibited during a special showing in Amsterdam. But before the exhibition has come to a close, the two detectives are called away to a nearby apartment building to investigate the murder of a man handcuffed to a radiator, shot execution style. That same night, an exquisite silver ewer is stolen from the exhibition." "Following the crime trail, DeKok stumbles across an invisible line between beauty and unblemished beauty, relating to the collection of both objects and people. Death seems to be a curse that follows around the unblemished beauty of one Therese de la Fontaine. But is it a curse or the malevolent desires of the person who wants to keep her as a collector's item?"--Jacket
