Kismet: A Kayankaya Thriller (4)

by ,

"Kemal Kayankaya is the ultimate outsider among hard-boiled private eyes." --Marilyn Stasio, "The New York Times Book Review" Introducing Kemal Kayankaya, a wise-cracking private detective in Frankfurt - aka, "the ugliest town in Germany." As a Turkish immigrant raised by Germans, he's regularly subjected to racism in the gritty, working-class city, and getting work isn't easy. So when his friend Romario asks Kayankaya to protect him against thugs demanding protection money from his restaurant business, the down-and-out Kayankaya takes the job. Except these are no ordinary thugs. They turn out to be battle-hardened Croatian nationalists looking to take over the rackets in Frankfurt, and they do not take kindly to Kayankaya's interference with their plans. But try as he might, Kayankaya just can't seem to stay out of their way ... What ensues is a brilliant novel about organized crime, immigration, the fallout from the Balkan wars, and the madness of nationalism from one of Europe's finest crime writers. Hide synopsis
