    It's a summer's evening in Amsterdam, and two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant for dinner. Between mouthfuls of food and over the polite scrapings of cutlery, the conversation remains a gentle hum of polite discourse - the banality of work, the triviality of the holidays. But behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened. Each couple has a 15-year-old son. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families.

    Seine Triumphe sind schon lange her, sein schriftstellerischer Stern ist am Sinken. Noch immer zehrt M. von seinem größten Erfolgsroman, der auf einer wahren Begebenheit beruht: Das aufsehenerregende Verschwinden des Lehrers Jan Landzaat, das landesweit Schlagzeilen machte. Landzaat hatte eine Affäre mit einer Schülerin und wurde kurz vor seinem Verschwinden vor dem Ferienhaus ihres neuen Freundes gesehen. Für Herrn M. bedeutete diese boulevardeske Geschichte den internationalen Durchbruch. Doch nun tauchen Briefe auf, die danach fragen, was er mit dem Verschwinden des Mannes zu tun haben könnte.
