Before the Dawn
Jaap Rykel is helicoptered onto a remote island off the North Netherlands coast at the request of the Police Commissioner himself. Awaiting is the body of a young woman, head wrapped in clingfilm and her stomach ripped to shreds. Rykel quickly uncovers strong evidence that the killings have only just begun and relentlessly pursues the chief suspect, a local man who has disappeared, before he can strike again. Just in time Rykel catches up with him and takes the killer into custody, hoping he’s averted more death to come.
But what the killer has to say turns everything upside down, forcing Rykel onto a path from which there’s no coming back.
