By Pieter Aspe

Hubert Blontrock, een notoir gokker, krijgt de kans om deel te nemen aan een roulettespel waarvan de inzet een mensenleven is. Een paar uur later wordt hij door de politie opgepakt wegens openbare dronkenschap. In zijn roes laat hij iets vallen over een roulettespel waarbij doden zullen vallen. Als Van In hem de volgende dag komt opzoeken ontkent de guy echter alles. Nog geen dag later wordt hij dood aangetroffen in zijn huis.
Onderzoek wijst uit dat hij elektrische schokken toegediend kreeg. Van In begint een onderzoek, maar krijgt amper de tijd om zich in de zaak te verdiepen. Op het strand tussen Blankenberge en Wenduine wordt het naakte lichaam aangetroffen van een meisje dat web een borstcorrectie heeft laten uitvoeren in de privé-kliniek van dokter Decoopman, een gerenommeerd plastisch chirurg. De twee moorden houden op het eerste gezicht geen verband met elkaar, tot Van In stukje bij beetje een gruwelijke waarheid ontdekt: het 'spel' waarvoor Blontrock in een dronken bui waarschuwde, wordt wel degelijk gespeeld. Merel Deman, het meisje dat dood op het strand werd aangetroffen, was once het eerste slachtoffer.

Example text

Grant had said. Believe what? That a person can come back. Emmet had set his boot down from his knee. Sipped his beer. Raised the opposite boot to the opposite knee. At last he said he didn’t know if he believed such a thing in any religious kind of way, if that’s what Grant was getting at, but he said his wife had been the one true thing of his life and when he looked out on this land and saw that bird setting atop it that way, well. He blew as if expelling smoke from his lungs. I believe a man is likely to surprise himself with what he believes.

On the wall at the foot of the stairs a vintage sunburst clock ticked prodigiously. As if sound was its only mode of timekeeping. The children began to talk to him. He listened and smiled and talked back and she remembered the little girl—her little girl—coming into her bed. The firm small body pushed against her. That heat, that smell like no other. “I’d better be going,” she said. ” He reached and touched her then, two fingertips, lightly to the bone of her wrist, and picked up his cell phone and showed it to her.

What happened? Nothing, Sean. We had an argument. What about? Grant shut the door and went around the wheelchair and sat on the bed. Nothing. Just an argument. She woke up that night clutching at him. It’s all right, he said, it’s all right. No, she said, her eyes bright in the dark. I was driving a dark road. Just me, and she came out of the trees, into my lights. She was naked and covered in dirt. Like she’d been buried alive. But she got out. Oh God. She got out and she was trying to come home.
