Barbara Nadel is my new favorite author. This book has an intricate plot and involved me in the life of fascinating characters. It gives a view of the rich culture of Istanbul, Turkey that you could never get by reading a travel guide. This is one of the Inspector Ikmen mystery series and as they are on my wish list, I have had to read them out of order.

The body of a teenage girl is discovered in a cistern deep below the city of Istanbul. For the Turkish police force's most idiosyncratic and talented officer, Cetin Ikman, this is a difficult case. The girl was his daughter's friend and her attire, that of a 19th century Ottoman princess, offers no easy explantion...

This was a good mystery - the Turkish names were a bit difficult at first ;o)

an interesting look into middle eastern culture - not overly deep, the plot was interesting.
