Allah alone knew what Çiçek’s friends were going to make of him at her dinner party. He hadn’t intended getting up this early and he looked, he knew, like something out of a zombie movie. My first impression is that is unlikely. It seems the car hit her post mortem.

Deadly Web is another great mystery by Barbara Nadel. Nadel provides a very clear story line and develops her characters in such a way that you feel like you know them by the time you are done. I'm a fan of Barbara Nadel and I have lived in Turkey long term. Most of her novels are accurate and entertaining. Deadly Web" is the exception. The plot is driven by a weird occult mumbo jumbo. The police department procedures are standard but the main suspect never grabs my interest.

Barbara Nadel is an English crime-writer. Many of her books are set in Turkey, others in London's East End. Born in the East End of London, Barbara Nadel trained as an actress before becoming a writer.

Barbara Nadel's books always explore interesting subcultures of Istanbul. In this one the Inspectors become involved in the Goth subcultures and satanism as they try to discover who has been murdering teenagers who think they have come to attend an orgy.

When a brutal murder shocks Istanbul's rundown Jewish quarter, the Turkish police force unleashes their best weapon - the chain-smoking, brandy-swilling Inspector Cetin Ikmen, husband to a strict Muslim woman (who disapproves of his drinking) and loving father of eight (with another on the way). With a colorful, multi-layered setting and a delicious labyrinthine plot, Barbara Nadel's Belshazzar's Daughter is a stunning and evocative crime debut, and Inspector Ikmen will surely join the ranks of beloved foreign cops Aureilo Zen and Guido Brunetti.

Silver Dagger Award-winning author Barbara Nadel explores a series of shocking and dark deaths across Istanbul in Deadly Web, the seventh instalment of the thrilling Inspector Ikmen crime series. Perfect for fans of Donna Leon and Abir Mukherjee.

The young go to extremes to get their kicks nowadays. A naked teenage girl is found dead near the beautiful Byzantine Yoros Castle in Turkey. She has stabbed herself through the heart but there is evidence of bizarre sexual practice. In another part of Istanbul, a young boy seems to have committed suicide in similar circumstances. What dark rituals could have compelled them to fatal self abuse? Inspectors Cetin Ikmen and Mehmet Suleyman follow an internet trail that leads them to an underworld of Goth nightclubs and Satanic worship. But even those murkey shadows hide more than they reveal and the answers to an ever increasing number of suspicious deaths is more shocking and terrible than they could ever have imagined.

I very much enjoy Nadel's Inspector Ikmen mysteries (Belshazzar's Daughter (Cetin Ikmen) by Barbara Nadel (2004-02-21),A Chemical Prison (Inspector Ikmen Mystery 2): An unputdownable Istanbul-based murder mystery) - not only for the characters themselves (and the way in which she varies the narrator and the focus of the stories), but also for her vivid, loving descriptions of Istanbul. Nadel's fondness - love, even - of this place is shown nowhere more strongly than in _Deadly Web_.

Set in the fall of 2003 (as the United States was making its case for an invasion of Iraq), tensions in Turkey are running high, as the possibility of war may directly impact Turkey in many unpleasant ways. In the midst of those uncertain and tense months, the bodies of young men and women are turning up, stabbed in the chest - perhaps murdered, perhaps the result of a ritual suicide. The case is ostensibly Mehmet Sulieman's, although Inspector Ikmen is brought in, working another murder/suicide that is eerily similar to the one Sulieman is looking into. As the investigation proceeds, Ikmen and Sulieman are drawn into the Goth subculture and we meet an old (and odd) friend of Ikmen's, a practitioner of magick who has some sort of connection to the victims and (through his connection to witchcraft, the Goth subculture). What follows is a veritable labyrinth of deception, odd goings-on and possible supernatural forces at work.

The climax and conclusion of the crimes was a bit of a let-down given its open-endedness - but I suspect that is part of the point being made regarding the rituals and allusions and connections to magic, illusion and the supernatural. I prefer something a little more solid and clear-cut. Nonetheless, the mystery and the investigation is Nadel's most puzzling and difficult to solve, and is the reason, I suspect, it was awarded a Silver Dagger by the Crime Writer's Association in 2005. For those unfamiliar with this writer, I highly recommend her - and this book.

I love this series and especially the characters who change and develop with each book. This book was a bit disappointing for me. The main theme of this book was magic, but not the rabbit-in-a-hat type, but mystical Kabbalah type magic. I feel that element was overplayed and overwhelmed the book. I could not understand why a gypsy who was not attached to the police in any way (except she was sleeping with a young officer) was allowed total access to the investigation and was, in fact, out on a boat with a handful of police officers when the killer was captured. And the motivation for a series of brutal murders was simply unbelievable. I realize this is an older book and hope for better reading next time.

I have been working my way through all the Inspector Ikmen Mysteries, and this one, was the most upsetting. I suppose none of us want to believe that teenagers could get into such dark things, and it's not normally my subject of choice when it comes to books. But because of the back story that runs through all the Inspector Ikmen books, I could not and would not skip this one.
In the end I thoroughly enjoyed it, even though I was scared!

Deadly Web is another great mystery by Barbara Nadel. Ms. Nadel provides a very clear story line and develops her characters in such a way that you feel like you know them by the time you are done. Her discriptions of life in Istanbul, Turkey are so good that if you have never been there the story will make you want to go. Not only do you get a good mystery from Ms. Nadel, you also get a fantastic travelog. Having lived in Istanbul, and other cities in Turkey, I can attest to her accuracy. If it has Barbara Nadel's name on the cover, I will read it.

The inspector has a bit more to do with the occult world in this book than he has in the past.

I have grown to appreciate the personalities of these characters and the author always adds some interesting twist as she provides insight into fascinating aspects of Turkish culture.

I'm a fan of Barbara Nadel and I have lived in Turkey long term. Most of her novels are accurate and entertaining. "Deadly Web" is the exception. The plot is driven by a weird occult mumbo jumbo. The police department procedures are standard but the main suspect never grabs my interest. He is a charlatan from his entrance. Let this novel die the death it deserves.
The is the first novel that I've read by Barbara Nadel, but I'm sufficiently impressed enough that I'll be eager to read more book in this series. The most intriguing aspect of this novel --- and I assume of the rest of this series --- is the locale, set in Istanbul, Turkey. Plus, in addition to the mystery of whodunit, this novel has a bizarre cast of black-dressed goth youth, magicians, satan worshipping, and gypsies. Toss in a whole lot of sex scenes (more than I can remember reading in any crime fiction novel) and you the recipe for a very interesting book.

In addition to the mesmerizing plot, I like Nadel's writing style. It's intelligent and witty, and also very respectful of the Turkish people and their culture. So many mystery writers "dumb down" the dialogue, but that's not the case here. I admit to having some problems keeping track of who was who --- oh, those difficult Turkish names! ---- and the plot flowed very well for the most part, although I thought the ending/climax dragged on a bit too long.

Nevertheless, I'm excited to have discovered a "new" crime fiction author that has a sizeable number of novels in their catalogue. Looking forward to reading another one in this series.
