Although I found the first few chapters hard to follow as they delved deeply into the political arena of Holland, the rest of the book was fascinating as it explored the murder of Theo van Gogh. Was a good follow-up to reading Aayan Hirshi Ali's "Infidel." Made for our most explosive book club discussion to date as an American who has lived in Holland for almost 20 years went head-to-head about racism and tolerance of immigrants with a Dutch woman who's lived overseas for much of the last 20 years.
