[First Published: As ‘De Aanslag’.] From the cover: “In the last months of the German occupation of Holland, a Dutch collaborator is shot in the street where Anton Steenwijk’s family lives. The body is mysteriously moved to the Steenwijks’ own doorstep, and in retribution their house is destroyed by German troops, Anton’s mother and father taken away never to be seen again, and his brother pursued and killed. Why did his neighbours move the body and so precipitate the destruction of his family? For forty years the answer eludes Anton, but he cannot avoid the clues which fall one by one into the path of his life.
