Overview

In the 12th volume of the acclaimed Inspector Ikmen mysteries, the chain-smoking, hard-drinking Istanbul detective ventures on to the mean streets of low-life London to solve a vicious conspiracy
 

When the Istanbul police raid a counterfeit goods factory in the run-down district of Tarlabasi, a young man with explosives strapped to his chest blows himself up in front of them. In the process, Istanbul's Inspector Çetin Ikmen is injured. Documents found in the factory lead the authorities in both Istanbul and London to believe that a terrorist attack, in part orchestrated from the Tarlabasi factory, is about to be enacted in the British capital. Ikmen goes undercover among the North London Turkish community, although what he uncovers there is certainly not what his British colleagues were expecting.
