Travel Guide

An Erasmus student at a university in Amsterdam. The horror of being out of your home town, your home country and being in a situation of terror. The suicide bomber who attacks the university is a frightening event, more so in today’s world.

The world of Erasmus and university life is unique and a place of peace and learning so when a bomber enters, the effects are devastating –

“Where the elegant period face of the old library should have been was now a ragged gaping mouth, belching fire and fumes over the canal”

Helping out the police may seem like a tenacious thing to do, but Georgina is keen to keep digging, keep going when all around her recovers from the horror of what has just happened. When fellow students start to die, she has a unique vantage point, being a student herself, of the crowd and the environment the investigation has to focus on.

From this world of enclosed and insular world of academia, the novel hurtles through other worlds, those of drugs and gangs moving over to Cambridge and London where the streets are gritty and urban and the people there more so.

Set mostly in Amsterdam however, the world of the foreign exchange student,  one studying criminology is the city of vice, drugs and prostitution is a neat premise and the stage is set for a trail of student life unseen anywhere else! The European context, the languages, political and academic intrigue…
