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 sems 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.

8 out of a possible 10; I read this more or less straight through; it involves mysticism in an Istanbul setting but not a kind of mysticism exclusive to Turkey; a good read and the only downsides are (1) once again it's difficult to keep all the characters clear despite the cast listing in the front of the book, though it was easier to do so here now that I’ve read several volumes, am familiar with the main characters and had only the “new arrivals” to contend with that were specific to this particular episode; and (2) lots of side issues are one-by-one closed off with only a sentence or two in the last few pages of the book instead of being carefully woven into the overall fabric of the wind-up to the story.
