Not as good as previous books in the series.

In this novel, Inspectors Ikmen and Suleyman attend a murder mystery dinner. Sounds like a fun night out, but the event turns into work when these two detectives must find out who committed a murder just as the dinner got started. I got confused with who was who since Nadel introduces many characters who have unfamiliar Turkish names. I didn't enjoy this story as much as some of the other Inspector Ikmen novels as Ikmen plays a minor part in trying to figure out who is responsible for the murder. Too much emphasis, IMO, on other characters like Sergeant Ayse and her off/on relationships with Izzet and Suleyman and Nar, a transvestite, who gets involved in helping out at the murder scene.
