The protagonist is Anders Quinn, whose half brother has been killed in a hit and run accident in Netherlands. His brother worked for Army Intelligence and he seemed to know his time was short. He sent Anders a piece from a set of historically famous figurines. Anders takes the piece to Lorens van Norreys, a jeweler (and from the previous books in the series, a intelligence agent). The upshot is we get a trip to postwar Netherlands with fascinating descriptions of historical places.
It's not all description of places, though. We move along in the murky film noir world of people engaged in activities that one does not talk about. I rather liked the part about "the man who makes memories" i.e. a man who crafts new identities for people.
It's a typical Norton juvenile. Our hero gets in over his head (sometimes literally), but has experienced guides along most of the way. He has a talent (an eidetic memory - very useful) and a flaw (bad leg, which causes him a lot of pain). He also has a lot of self-doubt, but then he is a younger version of the more experienced men guiding him.
The first two books in the series were "Sword is Drawn" and "Sword in Sheath"
