      The oppressive heat of the day combined with swirls of constant dust against the windshield makes the tour bus driver squirm with frustration behind the wheel He only wants to return safely with his cargo of thirteen shifting women to the end of their destination But a scream erupts at the back of the bus There from the bus window, in plain view, is the body of a dead woman perched, as if displayed, on the top of a wall alongside the road Too late to turn back Too late to unsee the seen.C The op [...]

      Niet echt een meesterwerk Slordig geschreven over Schiedam en Delft, hoewel ik het deel over Fabritius en de buskruitexplosie wel kon waarderen Beetje Baantjer achtig in mijn idee Dit is het eerste wat ik van Deon Meyer lees, dus hij krijgt nog een kans.
