"Inspector Jaap Rykel is on the brink, about to leave the force after the burden of past traumas became too much to bear. Visiting the station for one trivial final task, he stumbles across an investigation into a particularly violent murder - the details of which echo all too closely a case he worked on years before. But that case was solved. The killer was caught - and is still in prison. Which means that perhaps Rykel got it wrong. That an innocent man has been locked up, while a vicious murderer has been left to kill again. Is this his last chance to make things right? Or is it the blow that finally takes him over the edge"--Publisher description

Jaap Rykel ist Inspektor bei der Amsterdamer Polizei. Er hat in seiner Laufbahn schon mehr Tiefen als Höhen erlebt, seine letzte Beziehung ist einige Jahre her, er versucht, sein emotionales Gleichgewicht durch Meditation und das I Ging in Balance zu halten. Aber in seinem neuen Fall gerät er an seine Grenzen. Sein Partner wird ermordet, er macht sich Vorwürfe, ihn nicht begleitet zu haben, denn Andreas war auf Spurensuche bei einem aktuellen Fall. Die Ermittlungen überschlagen sich und nehmen Fahrt auf. Packend, skurril, authentisch, mit verschrobenen, teils auch unsympathischen Figuren muss der Hörer erst mal auskommen. Man schliesst den Protagonisten nicht gleich in sein Herz. Zu verschlossen ist er, seine Motive werden erst langsam, Stück für Stück, enthüllt. Erst spät begreift man die Zusammenhänge. Es ist zugleich das Debüt des Autors und Auftakt einer Reihe um Inspektor Rykel (Buch vgl. ID-A 24/15). Auf die Fortsetzung darf man gespannt sein. Der Sprecher, Götz Otto, besticht sofort mit seiner sonoren Stimme, emotional, packend und mitreissend
