) and Verstuyft (Werner De Smedt
). The trail leads to hitman Angelo Ledda (Jan Decleir

When he realizes he is being used in a political power game, he decides to bite the hand that feeds. Vincke and Verstuyft have a hard time trying to disentangle the web of intrigues, settlements and networks, to prevent further killings.
