Moord op Albert I voorspeld door Leonie Van den Dijck, zieneres van Onkerzele?

Televisiereporter Maarten Dejonckheere bijt zich giant in het onderzoek naar het dodelijk ongeval van koning Albert I in 1934 in Marche-les-Dames, en ontdekt dat de officiële versie van de feiten een sprookje is. Werd Albert I het slachtoffer van een passioneel drama of een politiek complot? En wat heeft een voorspelling van de zieneres van Onkerzele, Leonie Van den Dijck, met dit alles te maken?

Het spoor leidt naar de Rex-beweging van Léon Degrelle, die wel eens in verband wordt gebracht met de Illuminati, een geheim genootschap van katholieke fundamentalisten. Gesteund door nazi-Duitsland en de Italiaanse fascisten, beraamde Degrelle in de jaren dertig een coup die Leopold III tot het autoritaire staatshoofd van België moest kronen. De Illuminaten waren echter niet alleen zeer actief in de jaren dertig...

Patrick Bernauw oogstte veel succes met zijn trilogie rond Maarten Dejonckheere, die van 2006 tot 2008 verscheen bij uitgeverij Manteau, en waarvan dit boek het sluitstuk is. Na Het Bloed van het Lam, waarin Maarten Dejonckheere het mysterie van de Graal én van de Rechtvaardige Rechters ontrafelde, en Nostradamus in Orval, speelde Bernauw opnieuw 'een magistraal spel met heden, verleden, waarheid en verdichting' (Vrij Nederland over Nostradamus in Orval).
