"Kati Hirschel, the owner of Istanbul's only mystery book store, is fed up. It all starts when her lover Selim insists that she behave like the Turkish wife of a respectable lawyer--looking glamorous and making witty small talk the only requirements. Then her landlady announces an outrageous rent increase on her Istanbul apartment. She'd rather find a new place by bribing government officials, paying baksheesh, than moving in with Selim. Kati is offered a large apartment with a view over the Bosphorous at a bargain price. Too good to be true--until a man is found murdered there and she becomes the police's prime suspect."--P. [4] of cover.
