Everyone has secrets - some more valuable than others.
Sixty-six safe deposit boxes in an exclusive private Brussels bank are targeted in a spectacular raid. The bank would rather keep the thefts quiet, but incorruptible, straight-talking police inspector Paul Gerardi starts an investigation with more questions than answers. Why were only certain boxes targeted? Who do they belong to? And what is Salamander?
As Gerardi investigates he uncovers a web of secrets held by Belgium's industrial, financial, judicial and political elite - secrets that threaten to bring down the nation.
As key figures start showing up dead the inspector finds himself under attack, not only from the thieves, but also from those that would do anything to keep their secrets safe. Caught in the middle, the personal stakes for Gerardi increase with every move, each new discovery. If he is to survive, Gerardi must uncover the truth and expose both sides.
