The author of this novel is a great fan of Istanbul and writes about the city with enthusiasm. There is information at the end of the book to enable a visitor to book a comfortable stay, together with some guide book type history to get one started.
This is an engaging book if you like the Dan Brown genre (I do). I shall certainly take a look at The Jerusalem Puzzle (the next book in the series), hoping that Mr Bryan's enthusiasm for that city is as infectious as is his enthusiasm for Istanbul - and that his plotting is a bit tighter. I've never been to Jerusalem, so it'll be interesting to see how well the descriptions work next time.
The description of the execution is perhaps a little graphic for my personal taste but it is essential for the story to be realistic and page turning.
All the characters are well grounded. The male and female leads are sympathetically portrayed and this makes them easy to champion as they battle their way forward against innumerable adversities.
I read this book in three sittings often long into the night. The constant movement between major and minor characters and sub plots makes sure you stay alert.
The Istanbul Puzzle has something for every taste.
