This portrays a Turkey ordinary holidaymakers will never see. It is part of a terrific series featuring Inspector Ikmen and his team. In this one we have the plight of a gypsy encampment mixed with a Mayan prophecy and a lot of dead bodies; one a month, according to the prophecy, all with their hearts removed. Throw in some aristocrats and we have a good mix for another ‘unput-downable’ mystery which will keep you guessing to the end. The glimpse of the many facets of Turkish society and the underlying political information make this a highly absorbing read.

If you like Barbara Nadel you might also like to read books by Matt Rees, Marco Vichi and Simon Kenwick.

Synopsis

Body Count by Barbara Nadel

Any bloody death will lead Inspectors Cetin Ikmen and Mehmet Suleyman out onto the dark streets of Istanbul. On 21 January, a half-decapitated corpse in the poor multicultural district of Tarlabasi poses a particularly frustrating and gruesome mystery. But as the months pass and the violence increases, it turns into a hunt for that rare phenomenon in the golden city on the Bosphorus: a serial killer. Desperate to uncover the killer's twisted logic as the body count rises, Ikmen and Suleyman find only more questions. How are the victims connected? What is the significance of the number 21? And how many Istanbullus must die before they find the answers?
