I felt the same cold that I had felt earlier that evening in my son's room, the cold that came from inside. Beside the homeless person's head, Rick's face appeared. My nephew grinned at the camera. 'Take one,' he said. 'Action!'
An evening in Amsterdam and two couples meet for dinner to discuss their teenage sons. The boys have committed a horrifying crime, caught on CCTV, but so far they remain unidentified - except by their parents. Over the polite hum of restaurant conversation and the squeal of cutlery on plates, the couples have a question to answer: how far will they go to protect their children?
A bestseller that took the world by storm, Koch has written a taut thriller about two couples set over one dinner, who are brought together by an act committed by their sons. Reminiscent of The God of Carnage, every reader will find something or someone to idenify with in this suspenseful tale.
