Follow Inspector Cetin Ikmen into the dangerous streets of Istanbul in the thrilling new crime novel from Silver Dagger award-winning writer Barbara Nadel.
Any bloody death will lead Inspectors Cetin Ikmen and Mehmet Suleyman out onto the dark streets of Istanbul. A half-decapitated corpse found in the poor multicultural district of Tarlabasi on 21 January poses a particularly frustrating and gruesome mystery. But as the months after the murder pass and the violence increases, Ikmen and Suleyman's hunt turns into a quest 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?
