About this title

Synopsis:

When the wife of one of Istanbul's best known popular singers is found dead and his baby daughter missing the newly promoted Inspector Suleyman, scion of a one of Turkey's most aristocratic families, finds himself plunged into the magnificently vulgar, overblown world of Arabesk music, dominated by an ageing star, the monstrous chanteuse, Tansu.

Review:

`The delight of the Nadel books is the sense of being taken beneath the surface of an ancient city... we look into the alleyways and curious dark quarters of Istanbul, full of curious characters and louche atmospherics' (Independent)

`particularly interesting for its discussion of Turkish customs and beliefs.' Sunday Telegraph

`the delight of the Nadel books is the sense of being taken beneath the surface of an ancient city... we look into the alleyways and curious dark quartiers of Istanbul, full of curious characters and louche atmospherics' Independent

A bewitching style...a story that carries the reader willingly along until the well-sprung denouement (Gerald Kaufman, Scotsman)

The Istanbul atmosphere is as thick as Turkish coffee (Evening Standard)
