Another terrific book by Nadel! It would be easy to give away too much about the plot, but Inspector Ikmen must look for a missing woman, while his fellow inspector and one-time protege Suleyman puzzles over a woman's skeleton left prominently displayed. They, and other Istanbul police officers, are on the alert because an international football match has brought English and Italian tourists visiting in throngs, and Turkey's behavior is under EEC scrutiny. Nadel's books usually investigate subcultures in Turkey; this one brings us back to an old, once Jewish, quarter, and introduces us to the Turks who, as young people, were exposed to the foreigners on the Hippie Trail.
