Petrified (Inspector Ikmen #6) – Barbara Nadel
An elderly woman is found dead in a flat with the perfectly preserved body of a young man. In an ancient part of the Jewish quarter, two children are missing. Their father, an artist whose genius borders on insanity, only seems more driven in his work. And a raid on a Russian gangster yields nothing except the dead body of a girl he claims is his daughter. Could the connection to all cases lie in a macabre forgotten art?
But İkmen’s worries aren’t just work-related. His protege, Suleyman, is going dangerously off the rails. İkmen needs to act. But there’s not much to go on and with little more than his sixth sense telling him something is most definitely wrong, he faces an investigation which threatens to rock the very fabric of Turkish society.
