About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
In fact, although the author is touted as the Donna Leon of Turkey, I think her hero is more reminiscent of Sjoewall and Wahloo's Martin Beck than of Leon's Guido Brunetti. Either way, the novel is a good read, and I'm looking forward to reading others by the same author.
You don't have to be a Turkophile to love the setting, but those who are will be especially delighted.
Sometimes Nadel is compared to Donna Leon. The settings for their crime stories are as much stars as the people. In that sense, both are equally successful. Both detectives also have family relationships with their wives and children which are brought to life and have a bearing on the stories. Both detectives also have internal conversations which are thoughtful and humane.
I believe if you enjoy Leon, you will also enjoy Nadel, though both are distinctive writers able to bring their characters and places to life.
Nadel writes beautifully. I am in the midst of rereading all her books for the beauty of her writing. Deep Waters is a surprise and full of ethnic intrigue. History beyond belief. A worthy read.
