Hmm. Interesting plot and some of the characters were well-drawn. But it didn't quite hang together for me - maybe something was lost in translation from the original Dutch - there was some clumsy phrasing and unconvincing dialogue occasionally. Page-turner though. This was a leaving Holland gift from Barbara, Thomas, Emma and Jules.
