Publisher Comments:

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.

The P.D. James of Istanbul. *First time in U.S. paperback *Author has for years been a huge cult favorite among customers of mystery bookstores, which imported her books from the UK *2nd book in the Insptor Ikmen series; the author's most recent book in the series just won Britain's CWA Silver Dagger award for Best Crime Novel of the Year. *Police procedurals with exotic settings are extremely popular with mystery readers, particularly with women who tend to steer clear of cop series set in the U.S.. *Enormously atmospheric writing; author has widely been compared with Donna Leon. *A fascinating depiction of Turkish culture, laced with tidbits of history and a top-notch whodunit - Kirkus

Synopsis:

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.
