Item description for The Ottoman Cage (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) by Barbara Nadel...

A beautiful young man has been found dead in one of the city's neighborhoods. It's sad, perhaps tragic, but it should also be a simple case: There are signs of drug abuse, rumors of prostitution, and a local family has reported a missing son. Unfortunately, this is Istanbul, where few things are as simple as they appear, and the past has a way of intruding on the present. To unravel the riddle, the brandy-loving Inspector Ikmen will have to grapple not only with the residue of a century-old genocide, but also with an even older legacy that stretches back to the heyday of the Ottoman Empire.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Ottoman Cage (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries)?

Excellent Read  Aug 1, 2008
If you read The Janissary Tree by Jason Goodwin, you'll want to read The Ottoman Cage by Barbara Nadal.

The three strengths of this novel that make it so enjoyable are as follows: (1) it is exceptionally well written and an easy read; (2) the human element, though not always exploring the better side of humanity, is so very compelling; (3) the mystery is well developed -- without unnecessary tangents. Having read the Janisaary Tree, I can only imagine that refraining from such digressions is diffiult for an author who chooses a setting with such a rich history.

Almost every character in this novel goes through a transformation of one kind or another in a way that is both welcomed and believable. I don't know of many authors who can do that for so many characters within a single story without something feeling unnatural or forced.

My only regret with The Ottoman Cage is that the who-done-it details are realized by the reader before they are realized by the main characters. At the time, I couldn't imagine what awaited me with so many pages left to read - I prepared myself for not actaully finishing the book.

But the author compensated for this by immediately cultivating the human elements for which she had planted the seeds early in the story. Much to my surprise, the story continued to hold my interest right through to the end.
