Do you feel like reading a non-fiction book?
‘Mijn eerste lijk is gelukkig vers’ (‘Fortunately, my first corpse is fresh’) is a book about my adventures as a public prosecutor. Do you want to know how it really works in the DA’s office? What it’s like to be present at an autopsy? What it feels like to be at a bloody crime scene? This book describes murder and manslaughter cases, vice cases and how the police go under cover to solve a gruesome murdercase. But it is also a book about the doubts and dilemmas of this hectic job, about funny and sometimes even hilarious moments in court and about heartwrenching events in and outside of the courtroom. A very personal look into a world that normally remains closed. On Bol.com, the Dutch Amazon, the book gets more than 4 stars (4,2).
In ‘Het jaar van de uil’, ‘The year of the owl’, you can read about a series of miraculous events that happened to me after my father died. It’s a book about an unbreakable father-daughter bond, about resilience after having hit rock bottom and about a personal transformation process that eventually leads to my decision to leave my job as a DA in order to follow my writer’s heart. On bol.com the book gets almost the maximum amount of five stars (4,8).
According to the appreciation of readers, both books are a good choice.
