Who is Ayu, and why does she insist Johan’s home lies on an island he’s never visited? A criminal lawyer who mixes with and defends the darker residents of Antwerp’s red light district, Johan becomes entangled with a woman whose fetish for ear-based role play sex leads him into a world where the laws he knows and understands no longer apply. Ayu leads him into a new world of pleasure, linked to a past he didn’t know he was so connected with. The people he met, the lives he crossed, were no mere coincidences. Eventually, Ayu’s true nature is revealed, as is Johan’s destiny. The past, in time, catches up.
