Mar Preston’s police procedural dealing with the murder of a wealthy Kurdish college student presents some historical information about the Turks, Armenians and Kurds and brings up the possibilities that Yasemin Safak might have been killed for any number of the usual reasons AND presents the idea that her death might have been a hate or honor crime. How Detective Dave Mason and his crew solve who killed Yasemin unfolds in an orderly manner presenting Yasemin and her family as they are seen and experienced by those on the investigative team. Interpreters are needed by the team and are added into the usual task of rounding up clues, interviewing and sleuthing that is required when on the search of murderers willing to burn a woman to death. I believe this book will perhaps open some eyes to the horrific situation women around the world, and even in Western countries, may face when dealing with family and the perception of honor. ( )
