Ikmen and his friend Inspector Suleyman from Istanbul are sent to a police conference in Detroit, the city that was once the car capitol of America, is now dead, and decaying. The conference is boring, and both men wish to return to Turkey. Into their lives comes a man, Ezekial Goins, telling them that he is a Melungeon, and is really Turkish, and than Another Inspector Ikmen mystery to enjoy.
Into their lives comes a man, Ezekial Goins, telling them that he is a Melungeon, and is really Turkish, and thank god they have come, to help him find out who killed his son. Ikemen stays to help the police, but the plot continues to thicken, and who can he trust, when police get killed, burnt to death and beaten up? Someone is feeding information to the killer, from the police department, but who? Good ending, pleasant read. Apr 17, Frances rated it liked it. Disappointing - perhaps the setting of Detroit instead of Istanbul was the problem May 17, Therese rated it did not like it.

It interesting, if not disconcerting to read of Detroit's many woes through the eyes of Barbara Nadel, an English-woman, and Inspector Cetin Ikmen, our favorite Turkish policeman. Nadel sets out the history and roots of the race problems that have plagued Detroit, certainly since poor African Americans went north to work in the car assembly plants of the Motor City.
These problems already existed and were exacerbated by the influx of much needed man-power. Inspectors Ikmet and Suleyman have trav It interesting, if not disconcerting to read of Detroit's many woes through the eyes of Barbara Nadel, an English-woman, and Inspector Cetin Ikmen, our favorite Turkish policeman.
Inspectors Ikmet and Suleyman have traveled to Detroit to attend an international police conference that is focussing on the problems of crime in cities. It is the middle of a bitter winter, neither man is properly attired to withstand the howling winds and snow. Suleyman in particular is a fish out of water. He is not interested in the drug problems of Detroit's inner city. Ikmen, on the other hand, feels that if there are lessons to be learned here, he can suggest that they be applied back home in Istanbul.
On one of the off-site visits, the Turks encountered Ezekiel Goins, the grand-father of a boy murdered 30 years ago. Goins is a Melungeon, a term used to denote someone of mixed race. He believes that this was a motive in his grand-son's death, along with the fact that he was a small-time drug dealer, perhaps killed for encroaching on the territory of organized narcotics rings. Another young boy is killed, this time African American, and there is suspicion the two cases may be linked. Ezekiel Goins, who may have been of Turkish descent, believes that Inspector Ikmen is the only one who will take the time to solve the cold case of his grand-son's murder.
After the investigating officer is murdered, the Detroit Chief of Police asks Inspector Ikmen to stay on and assist his team in solving this man's murder which may have happened to prevent him from learning the truth about what happened to the two boys, and who is behind all three murders. Jan 31, p rated it it was ok. The weakest Ikmen yet. Very disappointing. I sense that the author followed the Turkish bloodline to the Melungeons in Appalachia, to Detroit, and hence a tidy reason to set a novel there.
Dead of Night (Cetin Ikmen, #14) by Barbara Nadel
But it was fantastic only in it's lack of credibility as a story. A bitter disappointment from a - usually - consistently excellent writer. Nov 20, Andrea Susan rated it it was amazing. Interesting crossover from Istanbul to Detroit for Ikmen and Suleyman to attend a police conference where they meet a man who feels they will the source of renewed investigation for his long since murdered son.

From the series featuring the Turkish inspector Ikmem, who is in Detroit attending a policing conference with his colleague Suleyman. The two Turks become involved in the recent murder of a young negro boy, which is tied in some way to the murder many years ago, of Elvis Goins. Zeke Goins has never been happy that his young son's murder was never solved, even though it is clear that it was related to Elvis's drug gang. He believes that he is part of a long lost tribe of Turks who ended up in Ame From the series featuring the Turkish inspector Ikmem, who is in Detroit attending a policing conference with his colleague Suleyman.
He believes that he is part of a long lost tribe of Turks who ended up in America after a shipwreck in the 16th century, and this piques Ikmen's interest. When he and Suleyman are shot at by the chief suspect in Elvis' murder, Grant T. Miller, this becomes the excuse that he needs to stay longer in Detroit to try to help Zeke find closure, to help the local police solve these murders, and also the murder of one of their local cops.
The body count climbs as others are drawn into the narrative. A likeable group of characters, and in spite of the many plot developments, the style is quite plodding and workmanlike, and lacks spark. Perhaps one of Barbara Nadel's other novels in the series may be better.

I pre-ordered this book waiting for paperback edition many, many months ago. I am a very big fan of this series and all the characters, especially Istanbul which is, to me, the main character of the book. Followers of this series have read descriptions of Inspector Ikmen's appearance many times but in Detroit he is described as a skiny Columbo with yellow teeth. For some I pre-ordered this book waiting for paperback edition many, many months ago. For some reason that is now unappealing! I was glad when Nadel sent him home halfway through the book.
The story itself was good and that is why I have rated it a 3. Death By Design 12 in the series took Inspector Ikmen to London, England but it was set within the Turkish community there and was much more successful attempt at taking the inspector away from home. I await the next installment and hope Nadel brings her characters back to familiar surroundings. Oct 13, Chris rated it liked it Shelves: mystery-turkey.
Ikmen goes to Detroit for a policing conference and gets involved with a 30 year old cold case of a drug dealer. Back in Istanbul, his assistant is finding love in the arms of another cop while monitoring the release of a serial rapist.
Ikmen's exploits in Detroit seemed a little unbelievable but at the same time fascinating. Nadel introduces a group of mixed race people from Appalachia I'd never heard of-Melungeons-who think they could be descendants of shipwrecked Ottoman sailors. Ikmen's chan Ikmen goes to Detroit for a policing conference and gets involved with a 30 year old cold case of a drug dealer. Ikmen's chance meeting on the street with an old Melungeon man who is the father of the murdered drug dealer starts a relationship which quickly moves to the present and a series of murders involving racism, greed, and corruption with the police force and city government.
Nov 22, Pat rated it really liked it. Ikmen in Detroit? Who would have thought?
The connection to Turkey is quite interesting and something new, to me. I have seen Detroit and found the stark reality of the landscape sad and frightening and this story is set amidst the debris of the city's past brillance.
I hadn't realized all the factors at work that brought about the decline but they emerge here, along with some hope. The book precedes Detroit's bankruptcy but touches on ways for the city to rise again.
