The tulip craze of 17th 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' 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!

How to destroy great literature.

Avoid at all costs. Poor recording with background noises of dogs and children.Reader unable to cope with complex syntax and sentence structure and has a dreadful 'Dutch' accent somewhere between a comedy german and a jewish rabbi.
