The Ottoman Cageby Barbara Nadel
Synopses & Reviews
The second in a new series featuring former policeman and soldier PI Lee Arnold and his Muslim assistant Mumtaz Hakim
Lee Arnold and Mumtaz Hakim run a detective agency—and their latest case could have devastating consequences. A new client, Nasreen, has sought Hakim's help. Recently moved to a new house, and with a baby on the way, this should be an exciting time—but Nasreen has made friends in the community that she cannot tell her husband, Abdullah, about. And when a murder takes place close to their home, Nasreen suspects that Abdullah also has something to hide. This case is a challenge for the agency, but provides a timely warning to Mumtaz—debts spiraling, her life is in danger of spinning out of control. Both women are on a path towards destruction, as the consequences of ignoring their instincts become ever more dangerous.

When a brutal murder shocks Istanbul's rundown Jewish quarter, the Turkish police force unleashes their best weapon - the chain-smoking, brandy-swilling Inspector Cetin Ikmen, husband to a strict Muslim woman (who disapproves of his drinking) and loving father of eight (with another on the way). With such a colorful personality and unrivaled investigative powers, Ikmen will surely join the ranks of beloved foreign cops Aureilo Zen and Guido Brunetti.
