Oh, no! Burçak Veral—kickboxing transvestite, nightclub owner, Audrey Hepburn lookalike, and amateur sleuth—has finally been invited to strut her stuff on a local television show. But during her appearance, an angry viewer calls in vowing to kill off everyone close to Burçak. Later that night, the show’s host is shot dead. What did Burçak do to infuriate the mystery caller? And in a city as chaotic as Istanbul, where does a girl even begin to look?

Dressed to the nines and ready to fight—or flirt—Burçak sets off on a desperate manhunt in another delicious Turkish Delight adventure.

Mehmet Murat Somer has worked as an engineer, a banker, and a management consultant, as well as a classical music critic and a film and television writer. He lives in Istanbul, Turkey.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Turkish Delight mystery series:"The Turkish Delight books are fun, they’re funny, and they’re an unexpectedly poignant glimpse into a world most of us don’t know. And they’re still good mysteries." — Charlaine Harris"If you're tired of mysteries featuring granny sleuths and ex-cops-turned detectives, you won't find a more refreshing alternative than Mehmet Murat Somer's . . . Turkish Delight series. Packed with flirtation and humor, this one is not to be missed." — USA Today"A whip-smart Istanbul crime series." — The Guardian (London)"Hysterically funny." (Praise for THE KISS MURDER) — Time Out (Istanbul)
