AMSTERDAM VICE is set in the roaring eighties in Amsterdam, in the historic city center crisscrossed with canals, where modern life clashes with the old village mentality. Detective Judd Cox has just been promoted to the toughest department within the capital cities' police force. Along with his new partner Montyn, the unique pair are investigating a murder case that leads to plans for an attack on the coronation day of Princess Beatrix. The duo must do everything in their power to stop such an attack. AMSTERDAM VICE is an original prequel to the stories written by A.C. Baantjer, the most successful Dutch book franchise of all time.
