In their provocative novel “The Dutch Institute” (published by AuthorHouse), which is getting a new marketing push, the writing duo Huppes Kemp offer a critical look at the state of modern-day healthcare in the Netherlands.

When Maarten Keyser becomes severely ill, his doctors give up on him, but he refuses to give up on himself. He fights healthcare bureaucrats to get experimental treatment for his cancer that standard chemotherapy can’t cure. The chairman of the Dutch Institute Stronghold rules the healthcare sector, and is strongly against alternative treatments. He employs his powerful group of cronies to prevent their use, and things get out of hand when Maarten and his friends discover a cesspool of corruption behind Stronghold’s carefully constructed façade of first-rate healthcare practices and facilities.

Praise for “The Dutch Institute” from the National Cancer Fund:

“The Dutch Institute’ reveals the truth of the petty-minded horse trading that goes on behind closed doors in the Netherlands’ most hallowed workplace: the corridors of the State administration that house those who wield power over healthcare. The Dutch Institute is holding democracy hostage.”

“The Dutch Institute” will be featured in the London Book Fair (April 8-10, 2014). More information about the event can be found at
