Snippet from Book

"Letís move."

The Tacs nodded at the same time. "Come in behind us," said Ferhan. "Donít disturb our line of fire."

Kemal reached to the brass doorknob, turning it slowly to release the lock, and when it clicked in, he nodded again.

They blew through the door. Levent knew he would never be able to write a reasoned report of what happened in the next seconds, which were less than a few and filled with tumbling noise.

Ferhan was first through the door, screaming "POLICE!" Kemal covered her from the doorjamb, screaming "DONíT MOVE!" He put his machine pistol on the first big man who stood to the left.

The man fired. It was probably just a reflex, but it was the one that killed him. His bullet struck the doorjamb, throwing chips of wood like a spray of water as Levent heard multiple answers from Ferhanís weapon. The man slammed back across the room as if on wheels, smashing down on the glass-topped table before the divan, the glass and the legs collapsing over him.

When he hit the floor, the women in the chair screamed as if she had been hit. Levent heard himself scream at the second big man: "EVERYONE DOWN! DROP YOUR WEAPONS NOW!"

Old Turkish headstones are often topped with big round headdresses the Ottomans used to wear. The bigger the hat, the bigger the man.

David shot this photo in a Turkish cemetery. It was used in making the cover for Graveyard Eyes.

About This Great Book

When youíre a detective at the scene of a murder, and the killer buzzes you for some chat, you know youíre in for a long hard chase.

Inspector Levent, the man the Istanbul police department sends when discretion is required, has to use all his skill to make his way through a maze of sex, lies, and hot money. He also knows that every turn in this case of high society murder will bring him up against the realities of power.

When he finally reaches the pinnacle, the discoveries he makes provide a full top-down view of the country of Turkey on the verge of entry into the EU.

Pulse-pounding suspense that grabs you from the first page and keeps you riveted until the very end.

From A Review

Perhaps the most refreshing book of the summer, Graveyard Eyes takes an interesting twist on the traditional murder mystery. Like other books in the genre, it has a detective who is driven to solve the mystery despite political pressures, it has a series of victims with little apparent connection, and it has a long list of potential suspects. What is different about this book, however, is its setting—the book takes place in modern Turkey.

From The Author

Itís hard to know where a city of fifteen million people begins and where it ends. At the waterís edge is a good guess. Istanbul, which used to command the routes to and from the Black Sea, now runs from the Bosporus to the Dardenelles and covers all spaces between.

Luckily, itís a city with little violent crime for the size of its population. For the ones that do break out, thereís Inspector Levent, who knows every steep switchback road, the sexual preferences, feuds and dialects of every neighborhood. But most of all, the things the killers always leave behind.
