He meets there Renée Soutendijk, the rich and beatiful treasurer of the literary club with whom he spends the night. But Krabbé is subjected to nightmares and premonitary visions during his stay at Renée's home. Nevertheless, he wants to stay in order to seduce Thom Hoffman, Renée's other lover. He will also discover that Renée's first three husbands have all died violently. Is it possible that he is the one who has been seduced here ?
