Complications upon complications. All in Istanbul--A psychiatrist calls long distance to confer with her Irish priest relative about marriage proposal from a younger, somewhat-aristocratic Turkish detective teamed with a half-Albanian, honest, hardworking to the point of not seeing his wife and 9 kids often, but meeting (work-related) his cousin, a trans-sexual middle-aged fortune teller who is planning to marry the younger, well-muscled man downstairs, to find out about old-country blood feuds. A rich half-English woman with a rogue kidney and a gold Rolls-Royce, and a cast of thousands (it seems) all appear in the first hundred pages.

Not a page turner, but it holds you, not too tightly ,as it wanders thru the results of two thousand years of metro living and genetically mingling.

I did not mention the one paltry (but nasty) murder that I have found so far.

I am plunging on past page 100, but this is it for the review.

Barbara Nadel's Istanbul series featuring Inspector Ikmen is one of the best around and this mystery is deep and multifaceted. I recommend this one highly. ( )

Inspector Ikmen becomes involved in an Albanian blood feud, when it turns out that a murdered body pulled from the Bosphorus is an Albanian long resident in Istanbul. Ikmen's own mother was Albanian, and what he learned from her helps him to unravel the crime. As usual, the city of Istanbul is vividly recreated, and Ikmen is a most engaging hero, but I didn't find the plot as involving as that in some other Nadel books. ( )
