Detailed book overview
Rhythm is everything to Dillen Lomans, which is why he drums paradiddles on his thighs whenever he is stressed.
With his Dutch band, Manic Mola, Dillen sets off to fulfill his dreams in America.
When Freek, their lead singer, is killed during a suspicious accident on the eve of the release of their debut U.S. album, Dillen finds himself on a desperate mission to uncover the truth behind the tragedy.
Although Ralph is convinced that he knows which god of Nature caused the death of his best friend, finding the truth could very well mean returning to the very place where he had a horrifying ordeal.

Caught up in the shadowy world of the Candomblé cult, Anna’s spiritual beliefs begin to waver.
Brought back to Amsterdam by her ailing father, something that critically tests her relationship with Orois, Anna returns to Brazil only to find the world she knew completely destroyed.
