Amsterdam is normally sedate but today there is a riot in Newmarket Square. Constables have blocked access to the adjoining Straight Tree Ditch Road all day. When the body of the "King" of the local street market is found in a room in his house on this street, his head bashed in, there are only two suspects: his lovely sister and the upstairs boarder. Which one is the killer? Grijipstra and de Gier must discover the murderer's identity before another crime can be committed.
