Beschreibung

The tulip craze of seventeenth-century Holland has a dark side! Cornelius van Baerle, a wealthy but naive tulip grower, finds himself entangled in the deadly politics of his time. Cornelius's one desire is to grow the perfect black tulip. But after his godfather is murdered, he finds himself in prison, facing a death sentence. His jailer's lovely daughter holds the key to his survival and his chance to produce the precious black blossom. Yet he has one more enemy to contend with!

Über den Autor

Alexander Dumas (1802–1870), author of more than ninety plays and many novels, was well known in Parisian society and was a contemporary of Victor Hugo. After the success of The Count of Monte Cristo, Dumas dumped his entire fortune into his own Chateau de Monte Cristo-and was then forced to flee to Belgium to escape his creditors. He died penniless but optimistic.

  • (4/5)
    Charming story. Ridiculous accents used by reader are distracting.
  • (3/5)
    This story is about the Russian invasion of Afghanistan. It's about the KGB and CIA, plenty of spies and counter-intelligence. Which makes it all a bit dated, but still entertaining. To me, the most interesting plot line revolved around former-CIA agent Alexander Fannin and his wife's cousin Tolya who works for the KGB. Their family and political loyalties interweave as Alexander helps Tolya's mother to defect.The author worked for the CIA and this has helped him write a fast-paced book that never streteches credibility beyond reasonable limits.
