Mehmet Murat Somer was born in Ankara in 1959. After graduating from Middle Eastern University (ODTÜ) School of Industrial Engineering, he worked for a short time as an engineer, and for an extended period as a banker. Since 1994, he has been a management consultant, conducting corporate seminars on management skills and personal development. Somer has written a number of made-to-order scenarios for feature films and television series, as well as classical music critiques for various newspapers and magazines. He currently lives in Istanbul.From Publishers Weekly:
Somer's second Turkish Delight mystery to be made available in the U.S. (after 2008's The Kiss Murder) explores Istanbul's gay life and an alternative culture with sharp humor that avoids any hint of campiness. The series' normally feisty heroine, a nameless transvestite nightclub owner who dresses like Audrey Hepburn but also wears men's clothes for her day job, has become too depressed to even bathe as she nurses a broken heart. Dragged to a nightclub by Ponpon, a close friend and drag queen, she falls in lust with Haluk Perkedem, a handsome but married lawyer. When Haluk's brother-in-law is arrested for a well-known gigolo's murder, she and Ponpon plunge into their own investigation, becoming the Holmes and Watson of the transvestite set. A complex web of family honor, the nouveau riche and sexual politics is tailor-made for an amateur sleuth whose double life is anything but simple. (Oct.)
