"I went through a dark time, too. This account really spoke to me."

Death in Amsterdam—Based on a True Story


Was it suicide...or homicide?


When Dutch police tell American Leigh French that a mysterious potion has killed her daughter, Leigh travels to Holland to search for answers. Why did two young women die in the rear garden of a house in Amsterdam? Was it suicide or homicide?

This gripping account of journal entries, texts, emails and narrative passages chronicles the journey of a desperate mother struggling to make sense of the ultimate loss.

This is the story of one family’s pursuit of the truth after the loss of their daughter. It is a cautionary tale that shows the far reaching impact of family values and the potential conflict with the new values of younger generations—proof that these conflicts are not restricted to teens and college-aged children, but continue into our adult lives.
