About the book

Faye van Laar has lived in a psychiatric institution since childhood. Her father is the director, but she is also a patient, and together with five other patients she forms an unusual family.

New to the family is Emilie, who suffers from paranoiac delusions since her boyfriend Steven was murdered. The perpetrators are now after her, she insists. Faye wants to believe her, she knows how it is to live with uncertainty, and tries to help Emilie by starting her own investigation.

She meets detective Simon te Bresser, who can’t drop the case regardless of the conclusion that Steven committed suicide under the influence of antidepressants. When Emilie suddenly vanishes without a trace, Faye and Simon team up to form an unlikely investigative duo.
