Have your say

A charity murder mystery night at Istanbul’s iconic Pera Palas Hotel is turning into a glittering occasion... until one of the actors is found brutally murdered in the room where the great Agatha Christie used to stay.

Just as well then that keeping a low profile among the high-profile guests is legendary Inspector Çetin İkmen, a man who will leave no stone – or bed – unturned to uncover the audacious killer.

Deadline is Lancashire-based Barbara Nadel’s 15th Inspector İkmen mystery, and age has not wearied this talented author and detective team who together stalk the shadowy underbelly of modern day Turkey in search of the darkest crimes.
