Any book with Inspector Ikmen is worth reading. This one flipped back and forth between Istanbul and Turkey a bit too much and too quickly. The author also lacked any real familiarity with American English, especially idioms. At one point, a character described what I imagine is a piece of clothing as "jean dungarees." Not only have I never heard such a weird phrase before but I can't imagine what it means. Overalls maybe? This was just the most jarring of many.
