In Turkey you will never have a shortage of plots and conspiracies and it is a country where more often then not truth is stranger than fiction. I think Jody Sabral has managed to tell story from her unique point of view as a British-American journalist working for Iranian satellite channel in Turkey! It is sometimes hard to tell where the book diverts from reality and where it refers to it, but it is what makes it even more interesting. It is a-real-page-turner that gives an easy insight into politics and culture of Turkey for those interested!

Fantastic debut fiction novel from Jody Sabral, made more atmospheric as I read whilst I was in a hot & sticky climate. Easy read and finished within the first 3 days of my holiday. Learnt about Turkey (a country I have never visited) and the politics associated with the Middle East.

It is a book about espionage, journalism and distillation through writing of a past life in a foreign country.
As a Turk I trust the kindness of strangers. The author's grasp of the Turkish political thinking is dee with so many difficult topics found their simple definitions.
Sabral is passing us the secret of journalism in the words of Kate, the books main character. She can not or will not make a fuss about the neighbours because she is in a foreign country yet it is amazing how she has evolved herself into someone with the experience of dealing with flirting taxi drivers who --we are told-- think Western woman are loose, well just by flashing an engagement ring at them; one wonders why not a wedding ring, after all it is a justified cheat. Reading the book brings home how the police force of of Islamist government fights against anti NATO protestors, reminding us that when "higher" interests are at stake religion plays a lesser role.
If you are informed about Turkey you should definitely read Changing Borders to sip the distilled drops of knowledge mixed with fantasy and enjoy the feeling as if you are having your personal executive summary about some aspects of social and political life of a country.
For me, first meeting between Kate and Belinda as we know at a cafe-bar in Istanbul creates the most beautiful feel with somehow pieces of a puzzle falling at their right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting view of politics in the Middle East 29 May 2013
By C. Lynn. Jacobs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book immensely. In the beginning, it confused me because I have so little knowledge of the Middle East. But I found the characters compelling, and I soon became attached to them and to the intrigue of their lives. It is obvious that the author has a deep knowledge of Turkish culture and politics, and I felt I learned from reading her work. I'm really curious as to how much of it is based on personal experience, and how much is actually fiction. I was sorry to see it end!

4.0 out of 5 stars Spyland Istanbul 14 Nov. 2011
By Guvener Isik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
You do not have to force yourself for the next line in this book. The events are well connected. It is a quick and realistic summary of the Turkish political atmosphere and mentality. One also will be informed about international plans and intra-national attitude about the Middle East in relation to Turkey and Iran. Hard facts are well distributed in the book. It is hard to tell what part is imagination.

Several characters in the book must be either the shadows of real people or their derivatives. Apparently the author knows Istanbul well.

While Kate was struggling between the practical concerns and principals, her mind continuously discussed an idea of justice as she developed an objective criticism of various governments.

And, Mavish found a new life. That was relieving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy Conspiracy 11 Nov. 2013
By DidemA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Jody Sabral's first book is roughly based on actual events. You can get an impression of Istanbul as a vibrant city of mystery. The author and the main character are both journalists, so the description of the journalist world is as close to reality as it gets. It is a very enjoyable and easy read. Can't wait for the second book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Chic-lit 14 Nov. 2011
By ReadeR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Chic-lit perhaps. Qualified political critique it is not. Simplistic, naieve ideas are confusingly linked. Poor sentences need to be reconstructed. In fact, it looks partly edited. Weak, narrow, implausible characters in the midst of hyper-event after event assuming as the plot. The excitable, self-centred protaganist is judgemental of everyone except for the male characters she surrounds herself with. After all it was described in one review as a cross between Bridget Jones Diary and Mills and Boon [...]. You be the judge. Or rather don't bother. Vanity publishing it is.
