Call in to speak with the host
Antoinette van Heugten, a former international trial lawyer, practiced worldwide for 15 years before writing her debut novel and “USA Today” bestseller, Saving Max. As the daughter of Dutch parents who fought in the resistance during World War II, van Heugten has long had a personal and academic interest in the history of the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, which eventually inspired the plot of her newest thriller, The Tulip Eaters (MIRA Books, November 2013).
THE TULIP EATERS follows Nora de Jong as she returns home from work to find her mother brutally murdered and infant daughter missing. The only clue is the body of a dead stranger, clutching a Luger in his hand. Launching a frantic search for her missing daughter, de Jong is forced to confront the roots of her family’s secret past in World War II, leading her to Amsterdam and causing her own haunting memories to flood back.
