Een pijp langs de Antwerpse Scheldekade: het enige aanknopingspunt bij de verdwijning van Albrecht Stuyt, een missiepriester aan wie een geurtje van pedofilie kleeft. Bizar genoeg vinden duikers bij het dreggen niet het lijk van de geestelijke, maar wel dat van Pina Gonzalez, een voormalig hoertje uit het Schipperskwartier. Commissaris Liese Meerhout van de Antwerpse moordbrigade krijgt kop noch staart aan het verhaal. Het parket beschouwt de zaak van de verdrinkingsdood van de prostituee als afgedaan, maar Liese zoekt koppig verder.
Wanneer uiteindelijk ook het verminkte lijk van de gewurgde missionaris aanspoelt, stapelen de vragen zich op. Want wie zit achter de moord? De hebberige neef van Stuyt? Een Afrikaanse smokkelbende? Corrupte pooiers en genadeloze smokkelaars.
Algauw raakt Liese Meerhout verstrikt in een kluwen van intriges, doodsbedreigingen, rauwe seks en gewetenswroeging. Niets blijkt moeilijker dan zoeken naar de waarheid in dood water.

In the cold months of 1865, young Mary Frere and her father, Bartle Frere, British governor of Bombay, set out in a caravan across the Deccan province of south central India. During their journey Mary transcribed 24 popular Hindu folktales told to her by her nursemaid. That collection of tales, which she published as Old Deccan Days, not only became the first Indian folklore collection in English, it established a new genre of writing about British India. These marvelously imaginative tales from the Indian oral tradition are peopled with beautiful, smart, outspoken women; rest, adventuresome men; gods who take on human form; and animals who know the secrets of human destinies. Evil magicians cast spells on humans, changing them to plants, and demonic, ogre-like Rakshases savor human flesh.
