Book description
Ook in De voyeur speelt inspecteur Jonathan Stride de hoofdrol. Jaren geleden werd de zus van zijn toenmalige vriendinnetje Cindy vermoord. Laura werd met een honkbalknuppel doodgeslagen in een park. De dader is nooit gepakt. Stride is met Cindy,die inmiddels overleden is, getrouwd, . Na dertig jaar komt een persoon uit het verleden terug, Tish. Zij was de beste vriendin van Laura en wil een boek over de gebeurtenissen schrijven. Tish beweert dat ze altijd contact heeft gehouden met Cindy, maar Stride weet daar niks vanaf.
Tegelijkertijd loopt er in het plaatsje een gluurder rond. Hij heeft het voorzien op meisjes van een jaar of zestien met lang blond haard. De uiterlijke kenmerken lijken de enige overeenkomst tussen de meisjes. Er lijkt schot in de zaak te komen als er een verstandelijk gehandicapt meisje wordt begluurd. Bij haar komt de man vaker terug en hij jaagt het meisje zoveel schrik aan dat ze vlucht en verdrinkt in een meertje. De moeder ziet de auto van de dader en deze kan gekoppeld worden aan een man die eerder met de politie in aanraking is geweest. En deze man was ook een verdachte van de moord op Laura. Hebben de twee zaken met elkaar te maken?

Er zijn ook nog andere verdachten van de moord. Een rijkeluisjochie heeft beweerd dat hij Laura's vriendje was en dat een man de twee aanviel terwijl ze in het park een beetje aan het vrijen waren. In het park liep in die dagen een donkere man rond die vluchtte na de moord. Het moordwapen, de knuppel die van het rijkeluisjochie is, is in de loop der tijd verdwenen. Maar ook die duikt ineens weer op. Zou het dan na al die jaren nog mogelijk zijn om de gebeurtenissen van de avond van de moord te reconstrueren tot een kloppend verhaal?
