Inspector Ikmen Synopsis: In Deadline by Barbara Nadel (book 15 of the series), Cetin Ikmen is headed to a murder mystery party at a prestious hotel in Istanbul. As he walks in the steps of Agatha Christie, Ikmen begins to get a sense of fear and hatred that he himself has felt before.

In Body Count by Barbara Nadel (book 16 of the series), Cetin Ikmen and Mehmet Suleyman are investigating a murder, but not just any one. This corpse in a poor area of the city of Istanbul has almost been decapitated. And as time passes, it turns into not just a hunt for an ordinary killer, but a serial killer.
