“Hysterically funny.”—Time Out Istanbul

“As refreshing as cookies and cold lemonade on a summer day. I wish there was a Turkish Almodovar to film all these novels one day.”—Perihan Magden, author of 2 Girls

The first in a new Turkish detective series. A killer is on the loose in Istanbul and killing transvestites. Our protagonist—fellow transvestite, nightclub owner, and glamour-puss extraordinaire—turns into an investigator in the search for the killer. It’s a tough case—can she end the slaughter without breaking a nail?

Mehmet Murat Somer lives in Istanbul, where he ran a business consultancy before taking up writing full time.
