Reviews

"This absolutely riveting novel moves rapidly . . . An attention-grabbing, cleverly plotted, character-driven yarn . . . In Agatha Christie fashion, Ackerman gathers his characters for what appears to be the grand finale but saves the true reveal for the very end."--Michael Russo, Library Journal (starred)

"Ackerman's trademark prose evocatively captures the strained nature of contemporary Turkish life . . . Deftly hints at a shadowy world that exists just out of frame and is one that lives long in the memory."--Alexander Moran, Booklist

"Deftly plotted."--Kirkus Reviews

"Red Dress in Black and White asks thought-provoking questions about the place of power both in love and in politics. For those who witnessed it, it is impossible to forget Gezi; same goes for this book."--Γ–zgΓΌr Mumcu, columnist for Cumhuriyet and best-selling author of Peace Machine
