Bankroet (Van In, Book 23) by Pieter Aspe

By Pieter Aspe

Tijdens een romantisch weekeinde in Venetië raken Van In en Hannelore toevallig betrokken bij de moord op Filip Vandecasteele, een Oostendse reder en tevens eigenaar van een visverwerkend bedrijf. Als blijkt dat het slachtoffer een paar uur voor zijn dood werd gebeld door een Vlaming, leidt het spoor naar Oostende, waar Van In en Versavel kennismaken met het ruige vissersmilieu, The Brothers of Harley (een extraordinary motorclub), een cynische Nederlandse zakenman en de artistieke scène. Het wordt snel duidelijk dat heel wat mensen een motief hadden om Vandecasteele te vermoorden, maar telkens als Van In denkt dat hij op het goede spoor zit, duiken nieuwe elementen op die zijn hypothese op losse schroeven zetten.

A man named Charlie Butler jumped in. “You got two kinds of whites in this city,” he said, “and two kinds of blacks. You got whites who’ll beat you if you come into their neighborhood. They live around Bridgeport and on the Southwest Side. Then you got another group that just won’t invite you in. They’ll call the police if you come in their neighborhood—like where you live, in Hyde Park. ” Charlie was a retired factory worker, a beefy man with tattooed, well-developed arms, a college football star from long ago.

By now I was sweating despite the cold. I leaned backward to try to get some light to fall on the questionnaire. The first question was one I had adapted from several other similar surveys; it was one of a set of questions that targeted young people’s self-perceptions. ”I read. ” The guy with the too-big hat began to laugh, which prompted the others to start giggling.

Pretty soon they were all in a better mood. They even gave me a bottle. By now it was well into the evening. No one seemed to have anywhere to go.
