Currently Reading - The Prophet Murders, Mehmet Murat Somer
This is the first translated novel in a Turkish series - featuring a Transvestite protagonist - unnamed in this book.
Something's gone seriously wrong in Istanbul - a killer is on the loose, and transvestites are being murdered, the circumstances becoming increasingly bizarre with each death. Our protaganist - fellow transvestite, nightclub owner and glamour puss extraordinaire - downs her lipstick and ups the ante in the search for the religious nut.
The opening line:
"I grabbed a cup of coffee and the morning paper and settled into my chair by the window. It's my morning ritual, I drink only two cups of coffee a day."
