Praise for previous work:

Songs My Mother Never
Told Me
(isbn 9781846590535)

'A brilliantly edgy, witty thriller that rivals Highsmith' Maureen Freely

'The author's rich prose captures the charm and immediacy of each location, while his detail conjures a dense historical backdrop. He excels in lending a sense of new intrigue to places on Istanbul's well-trod tourist track.' Time Out Istanbul, Book of the Month

The Sultan of Byzantium (isbn:

'This seamless translation captures the author's remarkable lyricism. Highly recommended for
readers of literary mysteries and followers of international crime fiction. Altun's love and knowledge of Istanbul shines through on every page.' Booklist

'Readers tired of the endless Da Vinci Code
knockoffs will find Altun's variation on the theme a refreshing one ... Altun
beautifully incorporates details about the Byzantine Empire less familiar to
Western audiences, as well as healthy injections of wry humor, into this
riveting escapade.' Publishers

Many and Many A Year Ago (isbn 9781846590672)

'An entertaining, somewhat absurd Hitchcockian comedy-mystery, rich in dropped names and arty jokes. This cheeky romp ... may
appeal most for its atmospheric glimpses of an inexhaustible city.' Boyd Tonkin, Independent
