Format: Paperback
Dead of Night is the 14th book to feature Barbara Nadel's brilliant and rather fecund Inspector Çetin İkmen, and his suave sidekick Mehmet Süleyman. At this point in the series you might expect any writer to flag a little, but Nadel shows no signs of fatigue. She has produced a complex slice of crime fiction which successfully mixes historical quirkiness with hard-hitting social commentary.

Dead of Night sees İkmen and Süleyman leave their regular Istanbul beat to attend a conference in Detroit and the culture shock hits the second they land. America is colder and dirtier than either expected. While visiting a rundown project being coaxed towards regeneration by a tenacious resident, they encounter Ezekiel Goins, an elderly man whose life has been destroyed by the murder of his son. He blames a local white supremacist group, headed by a now octogenarian half-Jewish anti-Semite, but by dint of the man's influence he has gone unpunished for decades. Ezekiel feels a bond with the Turkish policemen; he is a Melungeon, descended from Turkish sailors shipwrecked in America centuries earlier. To him, that makes them kin and he's convinced they are the only people who can avenge his son. İkmen is carrying the burden of grief from his own son's death and Ezekiel arouses enough sympathy in him to want to pursue the matter.

Meanwhile, back in Istanbul Ayşe Farsakoğlu is plunging into the dark world of internet fandom, monitoring the supporters springing up around recently released serial rapist, Ali Kuban, the Beast of Edirnekapi. The man himself is too old to be a danger to women, Ayşe feels, but she sees evidence of genuine threat among his fans.

I love Barbara Nadel's Ikmen books. Her characterisation is wonderful and her ability to conjour up the senses of Istanbul is second to none. But, why oh why do so many British writers end up by placing their main characters in the USA? Why? One of the biggest plusses about the Ikmen books is the setting and everything that goes with it. In this book, which is 90% set in Detroit, the foul language flows from the mouths of Americans like water from a hose pipe. Suleiman isn't happy there and Ikmen is like a fish out of water. No, I wouldn't recommend this book to anybody who enjoys Barbara Nadel's wonderful descriptions of Turkey and its myriad of characters because in "Dead Of Night" they are conspicuously absent. However, anybody who like, it seems, so many British authors, thinks that the USA with all the accoutrements that go with it is the greatest thing since sliced bread you may be happy.

Disappointing- Nadel seems to think that by adding another ethnic compononent to the story, that is enough (In this case an American group that claims descent from Ottoman sailors ). The crime thread- which is why we read it on the whole- is very lame and the outcome easily guessed. Not one to recommend.

Not one of Nadel's best Ikmen novels but good enough. Those who have enjoyed the earlier ones in the series have no choice here as the doing of the Istanbul murder squad has some interesting and unexpected twists and turns. As ever, Nadel keeps 2 stories running at the same time, and as well as ever.

**** for Nadel groupies

** for newcomers

I like this series and the exoticism of Instanbul but I equally enjoyed this book. Detroit may not be exotic but it is foreign to what I know and I think Ms Nadel has done a good job of exploring its underbelly. Our two intrepid detectives have been sent to a conference in Detroit and meet a Melungeon who believes that he is descended from Turks and that only Turkish detectives can solve the 30 year old murder of his son. Events spiral from this. Despite there being several bodies I found this to be a slow burner, where events unfold slowly, piece by piece to a finale. It is a great read - tense and compulsive and I found myself in full "just another chapter" mode until I finished.

I really enjoy the Ikmen books, but a big part of that is the Istanbul setting and culture which I missed here. The plot was still enjoyable with the characters and Detroit interesting but I hope we're back in Istanbul next time.

I usually love this series but this time the author has summoned Inspector Ikmen and his colleague, Mehmet Suleyman, to an international police conference in the decaying American city of Detroit. Huge areas of the city are derelict and even the hotel in which they are staying is partly used for homeless people and crime ridden. Almost immediately they are approached by an American who believes he is descended from Turks and who wants justice for his son, shot dead years ago. When Ikmen,s enquiries with the police lead to further killings, he feels unable to return to Istanbul with his colleague. Mehmet Suleyman hates Detroit and returns to Turkey, leaving Ikmen to face considerable danger alone. Suleiman also faces some soul searching of his own when he finds two of his colleagues in a relationship of which he disapproves. Definitely not one of my favourites of the series.
