Percentages of Guilt, by Michael Niemann

Faulkner once wrote, “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” Valentin Vermeulen learns the hard way how true that is. His former employer, the prosecutor’s office in Antwerp, calls him back. There are some irregularities with an old case. Once in his old home town, he finds out that he’s accused of abetting the murder of an informant back in 2002.

His interrogators slowly peel back the layers of the case and force Vermeulen to admit that he didn’t always play by the rules. He realizes quickly that he is to shoulder all of the responsibility for the death. But the authorities aren’t the only ones interested in blaming Vermeulen. The son of the informant is out for revenge and a crime boss shows a keen interest in the investigation.

Things come to a head when Vermeulen discovers a memo that implicates him in the murder of the informant. He races against time to prove that the memo was forged until he learns that the memo is the least of his worries. Something much larger is at stake, and Vermeulen is pushed into a tight corner as he struggles to clear his name and save his life.

An original plotline is matched by a hero with an unusual background. Niemann knows how to keep the pages turning.Publishers Weekly
