Two couples dine, and slowly it is revealed that their children have done something awful. Really, really awful.
Meeting at an Amsterdam restaurant for dinner, two couples move from small talk to the wrenching shared challenge of their teenage sons' act of violence that has triggered a police investigation and revealed the extent to which each family will go to protect those they love.
This book is not for the faint of heart. When you plan a dinner out in a restaurant with friends where you'll chat about what the kids have been up to, this is not the kind of evening you're hoping to have.
Two couples meet for dinner at a fashionable restaurant in Amsterdam. Behind their polite conversation, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened.
