A city is held in suspense. In Leon de Winter’s new novel, both fictional and real, existing protagonists pull the strings:

the dead filmmaker Theo van Gogh surfaces … but in heaven. On Earth, his murderer. A black Franciscan priest bequeaths a dubious Jewish businessman his heart. Abandoned by his wife Jessica Durlacher, a writer named Leon de Winter consoles himself with a novel project on Theo van Gogh. And a group of radical Muslims put Amsterdam into a state of emergency.

All of this is ingeniously, playfully, wickedly intertwined. Leon de Winter’s novel about the explosion of violence in the midst of our society is already a bestseller in the Netherlands.
