Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0747262187, Paperback)Inspector Aaetin Ikmen and forensic pathologist Arto Sarkissian have been friends since childhood, and their work together in Istanbul's criminal justice system has only served to cement their friendship. When they're both called to a flat to investigate the death of a twenty-year-old, there is no reason to think their relationship will alter. The case, however, is a strange one. Ikmen learns from the neighbours that they have never seen the man enter or leave the flat. The only visitor they're aware of is a solitary, well-dressed Armenian. Stranger still is that the limbs of the body are withered, and the victim seems to have been kept prisoner inside a gilded cage. What is it that's making Ikmen's old friend Arto, himself an Armenian, especially uncomfortable about the case?

"A young man's body is found in a secret apartment in Istanbul. The youth's limbs are atrophied and covered with injection marks. The windows in the flat are nailed shut and the victim has never been seen leaving or entering the flat. The only person sighted at the building over the years has been a well-dressed Armenian whose identity is unknown. Has the boy been kept prisoner? If so, by whom? And how did he die?" "Inspector Cetin Ikmen of the Turkish police force and Armenian forensic pathologist Arto Sarkissian have frequently worked together. They are close friends too, despite the differences in their religion, race, income, and lifestyles. But as they join forces to investigate this case, Ikmen senses an uneasiness in his friend's manner that he does not understand. Meanwhile, Ikmen has problems aplenty at home with his elderly father suffering from dementia and his nine children all clamoring for his undivided attention. And if that isn't enough, one of his team is developing a crush on another, which does not bode well for the case at all."--BOOK JACKET.
