De twee moorden houden op het eerste gezicht geen verband met elkaar, tot Van In stukje bij beetje een gruwelijke waarheid ontdekt: het 'spel' waarvoor Blontrock in een dronken bui waarschuwde, wordt wel degelijk gespeeld. Merel Deman, het meisje dat dood op het strand werd aangetroffen, was once het eerste slachtoffer.
