The Prophet Murders
by Mehmet Murat Somer
In cosmopolitan Istanbul a thriving transvestite community is on edge after the death of one of its ‘girls’. Dismissed by the Police as an unfortunate accident the case is soon taken on by the vibrant and charismatic club owner Burcak
, his Maitre de club, and information from the ‘girls’ he puts the real story together piece by piece. He calls on an old school friend, Commissioner Selcuk Tanyer
, for help. Tracking down an extreme fundamentalist, with the ‘chat room’ handle of Jihad2000
, he is soon immersed in a world so dark and sordid that even he may not survive.
