The brand-new Istanbul crime thriller staring Inspector Cetin Ikmen, 'the Morse of Istanbul'(Daily Telegraph), from Barbara Nadel. ON THE BONE is perfect for fans of Donna Leon.


On a buzzing Istanbul street, in the fashionable district of Beyoglu, a young man drops dead. Ümit Kavas's death was natural but the contents of his stomach betray a shocking truth: his last meal was human flesh.
Under desperate pressure from their superiors, Inspector Cetin Ikmen and his colleague Mehmet Süleyman begin the most obscure investigation of their careers. How did Ümit Kavas- apparently a good, liberal man - come to partake in the greatest taboo of all? Did he act alone? And who was the victim who met such a gruesome end?
Soon they find themselves embroiled in a dark web of seemingly unconnected worlds: of Turkey's old secular elite; of a community of squatters; and a new gastronomy scene breaking every boundary. But where does the truth lie?
