A suicide. A drowned man. A sudden death. For some people it's just another day's work. In Amsterdam there's a council department known affectionately as the Lonely Funerals team. It exists to arrange burials for the abandoned or unknown dead, with the care and dignity that every life deserves. Pieter Posthumus hasn't been doing the job long, but he's determined to do it well. He finds that he cares deeply about the people whose files land on his desk.

Pieter Posthumus wouldn't live anywhere but Amsterdam...though the Earth 2050 conference, with its attendant crowds, has left him feeling somewhat under siege. At least his work at the Lonely Funerals team is quiet. Then one of the delegates is attacked. Posthumus agrees to look into the case, sparking memories of his own time as a student radical. Amsterdam has always attracted people with fierce views...but is someone willing to kill for their principles? Or was the attack much more personal?

A minute can make all the difference.... Pieter Posthumus is enjoying a quiet drink in his favourite bar when the screaming starts. A minute later the owner of the guesthouse next door rushes in: one of her tenants has been murdered. Marloes, the guesthouse owner, is an odd but kind soul. Posthumus cannot believe it when she is arrested - for both her tenant Zig's murder and another death years before. He knows there are questions unanswered: what is the link between the two cases?

Er ist kein Polizist, kein Privatdetektiv - und trotzdem dreht sich in seinem Leben alles um den Tod. Im "Büro der einsamen Toten" bei der Stadt Amsterdam kümmert sich Pieter Posthumus um die einsamen Toten - Menschen ohne Angehörige, Menschen, die keiner vermisst - und richtet ihnen ein würdiges Begräbnis aus, mit Musik und Gedichten. Bei seinen Recherchen stößt er auf so manche Ungereimtheit. In der Prinsengracht ist die Leiche eines jungen Mannes gefunden worden.
