Glorious Works of G.F. Zwaen, The

Late 1990’s: Amsterdam-based writer G.F. Zwaen becomes entangled in a plot involving a drugs trafficker, a dodgy tax inspector and an internal affairs agent

It’s nearly the end of the 20th Century and Amsterdam-based writer Gerard F. Zwaen is not having the best of times. He's in the middle of a divorce, he has a dwindling reputation as a writer and his latest novel ‘The Spider…’ is not getting the acclaim he feels it deserves. And he needs money. But his life takes a sudden turn for the better  when he stumbles upon an unexpected and horrific scene. The writer seems to see an opportunity in it...
