Murder in the light of the cards
Steve (17) is going to stay with his mother. Their relationship has been difficult since she left the family three years ago for Henk, a wealthy businessman. Steve expects a boring, quiet holiday in Turnhout. But it turns out very differently ...

But how come Steve found a charm from her bracelet by the entrance? His mother won’t take the disappearance seriously. Mora often runs away from home to teach her stepmother a lesson. Henk is temporarily not informed, because he is busy with his exhibition of antique playing cards. A burglary at the museum keeps him fully occupied.
But Steve finds another charm. In the fist of a murdered man! Then the housekeeper gets a phone call: Henk has to pay a ransom or else ...
