Drag Queen Mystery

Post by gillyflower on Sun Mar 28, 2010 8:38 am

I just finished a book called The Gigolo Murder , a Turkish Delight Mystery. Smile

"Software programmer by day and hostess of Istanbul's most notorious drag-queen club by night, Mehmet Murat Somer's intrepid detective is back again, just jilted and feeling so blue she's violet - until she meets the hunky, married lawyer Haluk Perkedem. When their conversation is interrupted by a phone call delivering news that Haluk's brother-in-law has been arrested for the murder of a notorious gigolo, she decides to put her sleuthing instincts and Thai kickboxing skills to work unraveling the crime - uncovering a web of blackmail among the city's nouveau riche along the way."

The combination of the Turkish culture meets the drag queen world is quite novel to my experience. It a fun little book and it offers an amusing and kind look at a world I know nothing about. It's a mystery but the real draw is the glimpse into the world of a drag queen.

Ah, misunderstood. I'll have to pick up. After I read the ten billion other books on my list.
