Barbara Nadel is a great author and I read all her books. Her latest one DEADLINE is the fouteenth in her series about Inspector Ikmen. This is a mystery book, read between the lines, murder (s),. Set in Istanbul, as all other Inspector Ikmen ones, except for one when he spends most of his time in London, all her books give the reader some kind of nostagfia about Istanbul. They are charged atmospherically and lots of information can be gleaned about this city, whether about religions, their clash, their diversity, even small ethnic beliefs in a faraway turkish province or romanichels. Inspector Ikmen had supposedly a witch as a mother. Such events and lots of bits of knowledge very diversified including informations about the late Ottoman Empire or as the major earthquake that shook Istambul are inside the story.
All her books left me enthralled and I would rate them 5 stars as mystery books. The latest one, Deadline was set in 2010; will there be another one since Islam is in power, somehow I doubt so. By, the way Ikmen is not a believer in anything except the truth.
Well worth reading if you like the genre and I would start with the 1st one as the stories have incidences on each other.
