A novel by

 
 
1941.

Amsterdam's Jewish Quarter.

More than four hundred young Jewish men have been taken hostage in revenge for the death of a German policeman.

The Jewish resistance group - the knokploegen - is fighting back and the Christian population has gone on strike in their defence.

And Hans-Max Hirschfeld will have to make a fatal choice.

As the Dutch Secretary General for Trade and Industry he is working closely with the Germans, but as a Jew he is also trying his best to help the civilian population.

Hirschfeld's nephew, Manny, has joined the Dutch resistance. When he discovers Manny's plans to blow up the German cruiser Arminius, Hirschfeld knows he has to stop him in order to save any more Dutch Jews from being taken hostage, and ultimately killed.

But with brother pitted against brother, and man spying on man, how can Hirschfeld stop the resistance without being branded a traitor himself?

And how can he save the shipyard from sabotage without putting his nephew's life in danger?

As Hirschfeld becomes more and more embroiled in the plot he discovers that compromising with evil can have terrible consequences, and must learn to wrestle with The Enemy Within...
