"The Black Tulip" was one of those books of his I'd not read, nor even heard of until recently. The story is set in The Netherlands during the time of William of Orange (s). It involves the civil unrest of the time, but is primarily concerned 4/5(58).   The Black Tulip, by Alexandre Dumas, is a work of historical fiction that mixes actual events in the Netherlands in the 17th century with fictional characters and events. The first third of the novel provides a thorough explanation of Dutch politics and culture—a stark difference from many of Dumas' other works, which launch into breakneck action from the very first page.   Cornelius von Baerle, a respectable tulip-grower, lives only to cultivate the elusive black tulip and win a magnificent prize for its creation. But after his powerful godfather is assassinated, the unwitting Cornelius becomes caught up in deadly political intrigue and is falsely accused of high treason by a bitter rival/5(93).

  Bearden tests the fiction waters with The Black Tulip. The book has the usual international spy ops intrigue with a smattering of romance and action. I just didn't dig it too much. It's not horrible. It's just not good; which is ironic because Bearden lived the life for 30+ years, as opposed to the armchair warriors writing better books/5.

The Black Tulip, written by Alexandre Dumas père and published in , is a historical novel placed in the time of Tulipmania in the Netherlands. The novel begins with the politically motivated mob lynching of the de Witt brothers and then follows the story of Cornelius van Baerle, godson of Cornelius de Wit. The Black Tulip is an engaging romp through Holland in when religious differences cost people their lives in brutal fashion and tulip bulbs were so highly valued as to provide fodder for a tale of spying, mystery and imprisonment.
