The first in the atmospheric Amsterdam-set crime series, which combines the city's old-world charm with contemporary issues of corruption, immigration and crime.

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.

So when something doesn't seem quite right about a Moroccan immigrant's 'accidental' drowning, Posthumus starts digging.

His quest for justice will lead him down some dangerous paths, and into conflict with some very dangerous men...

MEDIA REVIEWS
A page-turner full of suspense and surprising twists and turns...Phenomena like home-grown terrorism make this novel just that much more exciting. Once I started reading I could not put it down. -- Ayaan Hirsi Ali
The main character is a very appealing, convincing and enthralling creation with a truly bizarre occupation...As with Morse, the city where the action takes place becomes one of the main characters...a compelling story that leaves you wanting to hear more about Pieter's work and his life - and how the city copes with its marvellous mix of eccentrics and dangers. * We Love This Book *
Very engaging...Posthumus holds enormous literary appeal -- Readings Australia
A delicious writing style makes Lonely Graves an outstanding debut * Algemeen Dagblad *
No typical thriller...Posthumus is a find! * Vrij Nederland *
An atmospheric and glorious Amsterdam crime story * JAN *
