About the book

Late one night, our glamour-puss nightclub manager receives a visit from Buse. For many years, Buse has kept letters and photos of a compromising nature, from a former relationship with a powerful lover. But her apartment has been ransacked and Buse worries about the consequences.Being an obliging sort, our detective agrees to help out, but what initially appears to be a personal favour turns out to have repercussions that run much deeper. When the web of intrigue reveals that an arch-conservative politician and maybe even the Mafia are involved, it's time for our private eye to send out an urgent SOS via the underground Istanbul grapevine.

Reviews

A whip-smart Istanbul crime series.

- Guardian

Praise for The Prophet MurdersA camp comedic thriller... amusing high-adrenalin romp

- Guardian

Superior mysteries

- Guardian

The refreshing result is beyond camp but highly amusing and oozes atmosphere as well as rampant sexuality

- Julia Handford, Sunday Telegraph

Blackmail, botox and a passion for Audrey Hepburn combine in this camp but intelligent thriller.
