Readers > Kemal Ates
Cuneyt Ulsever was born in Ankara, Turkey and grew up in Istanbul. After an extensive education in Turkey, he completed a master's degree in International Relations at John Hopkins University and a master's degree in Economy from Columbia University. From there he went onto Harvard University and earned a doctorate in Human Resources.
After completing his education, Ulsever returned to Turkey and worked in the financial sector until he decided that politics and current events were what really interested him. Then he became a political commentator in newspapers and on television. He also began writing novels, often with a political twist. Two of these novels, The Pilgrim and The Lame Revolutionary Conspiracy have won a wide readership and much acclaim.
Murders at Castletop is a story far from politicsa story based on old-fashioned police work which uncovers a tale of revenge, the roots of which are hidden deep beneath a rotting humus of human tragedy.
Ulsever now lives in Istanbul with his wife, Neriman, and continues to write books and newspaper editorials.
