Butterfly On The Storm is the first book in the bestselling Dutch thriller series The Heartland Trilogy.
A young boy is found in woods outside Amsterdam. Broken and bloody, he appears to be the victim of a brutal hit-and-run. When the police at the hospital ask what happened, the one word the boy repeats they don’t understand.
But journalist Farah Hafez does. She left Afghanistan as a child and she recognizes her native tongue. As the boy is taken into surgery she finds herself visiting the scene of the crime, seeking to discover how a little Afghan boy came to be so far from home.
Instead, she comes across a burnt-out car with two bodies inside – a sinister clue to something far darker than a simple road accident.
It is just the start of a journey that will lead her from one twisted strand to another in an intricate web of crime and corruption that stretches across Europe and deep into a past that Farah had sought to escape – a past that nearly killed her.
