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, 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. Praise for The Black Tulip “An irresistible page-turner especially vivid because we know the author was a witness to events.”—The Wall Street Journal “Milt Bearden really delivers.

The Black Tulip, written by Alexandre Dumas père and published inis 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. While The Black Tulip lacks the swashbuckling, derring-do adventures of the other Dumas novels I have read, it is every bit as enjoyable to read.

Beginning with the arrest of two brothers, deemed traitors to the throne, Dumas Holland-based story at least begins with as strong a conflict as his other more action-laced novels.5/5(5).
