Dead Tulips

16-year-old Leon spent time in a young offenders’ institute for a crime he didn’t commit. Now out on parole, he’s about to start a new job in a florist’s when he — of all people — stumbles across the corpse of a beautiful young woman. It goes without saying that the Chief Inspector has Leon down as his main suspect. Luckily for Leon, florist’s daughter Laura is convinced of his innocence, so they set out together to look for the killer...

In the course of their investigations they soon unearth a disturbing family secret, a pathological obsession with black tulips, a very strange young man and the dead woman’s stunning sister — and that’s just the beginning!
