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.

The blurb:

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."
