Reviews

'My crime reader is raving about this author, and says this second title is better than her first, BELSHAZZAR'S DAUGHTER. They have an atmospheric Turkish setting, with an excellently drawn investigating officer. Good one and worth watching' Bookseller 'Even better than Nadel's extraordinary first book...tightly organised...the dark, Byzantine plot springs organically from the tensions of race and class in Turkish society, which is treated with a depth and detail unusual in a crime novel' Evening Standard 'A thriller that presents a Middle Eastern city populated by human beings, rather than specimens of oriental exotica, and a British writer who can get inside a foreign skin' Independent 'My crime reader is raving about this author, and says this second title is better than her first, BELSHAZZAR'S DAUGHTER.
