The Girl in the Web
‘Now’ is an indication of time, like ‘back then’ and ‘later’. It’s part of a continuum of past, present and future, designed for life on Earth. But since time is essentially an illusion, one cannot be ‘in the now’. Freedom can only be found outside space/time reality, one with consciousness. There, déjà vu’s are commonplace.
Iris, an eighteen-year-old Dutch girl with Native-American blood, goes into a deep trance when she has to fight for her survival in a snow cave. She leaves her body and meets a shaman, a wolf and Bokke, the little man. Iris learns the language of the Lakota-indians, experiences the hardships of her ancestors and discovers how her great-grandfather, an Oglala Lakota, died in the Second World War. Gradually, it becomes clear that her life is predestined. Her out-of-body experiences show her the way for the rest of her life.
“I recommend the book to everyone. Novels are relaxing anyway and who can not use extra relaxation today? As a cherry on the literary cake, this book with its deeper meaning opens not only your mind but also your heart. Step into Iris her light brown moccasins, which she certainly wore in one of her previous lives, and let yourself be carried away with the storyline. But the best advice remains the words repeated several times in the book: Listen to your heart and choose the right path. This book came my way, I listened to my heart and I enjoyed it immensely.”
“For those who seek the TRUTH of American History. For those who seek the TRUTH of Another Reality and perhaps Kindred Spirits, you will love this deeply brilliant and profound book. It’s hard to put down and moves at a fast pace. We are not alone and I just ordered two more copies. Thank You Jaap Cove. BRAVO”
“I thoroughly fell into The Girl in the Web from start to finish. The time tripping that Mr. Cové employed delighted me. He seems to have both a deep sensitivity for and an honest love of indigenous contexts as revealed in the research he had done to bring us into this world. The tension he created as the end of the story really impressed me. I enjoyed all of his characters as well as the inventiveness of his fiction. His logic that there is no “now” tickled my own logic and made me appreciate this wisdom. I have to congratulate Mr. Cové on an excellent read.”
When Anna Bloem, a young woman from Amsterdam, discovers she has a half-brother living in Brazil, she immediately departs on a quest. Her search leads her to the dunes of Ceará, where she loses her heart to Orois, and comes under the influence of a she-male shaman and medium, Marcela. Anna gets entangled in the dark world of the Candomblé cult, and her spiritual convictions begin to crumble. When her father’s illness calls her back to Amsterdam, her relationship with Orois is severely tested. Upon returning to Brazil, she finds the world she had known has disintegrated. Anna must risk her life, and use all her strength of will to undo the evil that has worked against them and shrouded her love for Orois.
Cajú is a gripping, spiritual novel, in which Jaap Cové shows how a strong love—crossing borders beyond life itself—can conquer the evil enchantments of a powerful and dangerous sorcerer.

This is the second Cové book I have read, and I find his voice as unique as his mind is inventive. Cajú is a thrilling adventure.

Dillen Lomans can’t live without rhythm. When he’s stressed he drums paradiddles on his thighs until he’s able to think straight again. When he wants to gain insights, he drums his head clear to make space for them. He drums himself ‘into the zone’—a skipping of dimensions in which anything is possible.
With his Dutch band, Manic Mola, Dillen tries his luck in America. On the eve of their first U.S. album release, their lead singer, Freek, dies in a mysterious accident. Devastated, Dillen tries to discover what happened to his best friend. His investigation leads to Ralph Miller, a Yurok Indian who uses sweat lodges to open his mind to The Great Spirits that manifest when the world is out of balance. Ralph believes he knows which god of Nature is responsible for Freek’s death. The proof lies in the Oregon woods, in the same spot where Dillen had a terrifying experience the night of the accident. Dillen is driven farther away from common-sense solutions as he peels back the layers covering the truth that awaits deep in the wilderness.

This novel runs at a gallop from a scary opening to a thrilling climax that involves the supernatural. The author doesn’t set out to prove the existence of Sasquatch, but he certainly makes the reader wonder as his plot converges on the dark woods of the Pacific Northwest where gangsters, police, and Bigfoot believers corner the hapless hero, drummer Dillen Lomans.
