Daylight by Diederijk van Rooijen


A young lawyer's dangerous journey to prove her half-brother's innocence reveals many dark family secrets.

Young lawyer Iris discovers that she has an older, autistic half-brother Ray, who is in prison for the atrocious murder of his neighbour and her five year-old daughter. When she meets Ray he reminds her a lot of her own son Aron, who also is autistic, and she starts to believe that he is innocent. But when she starts an investigation to prove this she is forced to ask many questions, and little by little, despite her hopes and doubts, her true family history is revealed…
