A Window Girl of Amsterdam

La description

Seventeen-year-old Christiane disappears in Amsterdam. "A Window Girl of Amsterdam" weds the pleasure of literary fiction with that of the thriller. UN translator Fiona Michaels flies to Amsterdam to search for her daughter, Christiane, who disappears while traveling abroad with art students from Yale. Suspecting that the Nederlander police are corrupt, Fiona enlists the assistance of her first husband, Dante O'Farrell, an Interpol agent, and fiancé, Tilman De Kerk, CEO and scion of a diamond corporation, to help find Christiane. The search for the lost daughter takes characters to the diamond mines of Africa, the streets of Kiev, and the brothels, churches, canals, theaters, music halls, and coffeehouses of Amsterdam. The accretion of evidence links Christiane's disappearance to the CIA and a covert agent of the Russian Mafia. A dark, taut, poetic tale of the soul, "A Window Girl of Amsterdam" creates an intriguing retelling of Dante's "Inferno" and the myth of Demeter and Persephone. Will Fiona find her daughter?
