Bestsellers in Mehmet Murat Somer's home country of Turkey and set to take the world by storm, the arrival of the Hop-Ciki-Yaya mysteries is cause for excitement (and lip gloss!) here in the United States.
A male computer technician by day and a transvestite hostess of Istanbul's most notorious nightclub by night, the unnamed heroine of 'The Kiss Murder' is the most charming and hilarious sleuth to debut in recent memory. When Buse, one of the "girls" at her club, fears someone is after private letters from a former lover, she comes to her boss for help. The next day Buse is dead and our girl must find the murderers before they find her.
Fortunately, she is well armed with beauty, wit, the wardrobe of Audrey Hepburn, and expert Thai kickboxing skills. With a page-turning plot and an irresistibly charming protagonist, 'The Kiss Murder' is sure to attract mystery lovers and nightlife mavens alike.
