THE GIGOLO MURDER is the third Hop-Çiki-Yaya series of books from Turkish author Mehmet Murat Somer.  For anybody who has missed the earlier books this is a series about an unnamed (in the books) computer expert, night-club owning, transvestite.  Not just hilarous, these books give a delicious glimpse into another world.

From the Blurb:

Devastated by a break-up, our unnamed Turkish tranvestite heroine swaps her catsuit for pyjamas and becomes a recluse.  But her friends refuse to let her waste away in self-pity and drag her out to make up the numbers for a party. ... At the soirée, she becomes entranced with a powerful married man, but it seems unlikely their paths will cross again.  Until a body is found ...

Opening Lines:

Superhandsome Haluk was pale when he returned.  Even in the dimly lit room, it was clear the colour had drained from his face.

Devastated by a break-up, our unnamed Turkish transvestite heroine swaps her catsuit for pyjamas and becomes a recluse.  But her friends refuse to let her waste away in self-pity and drag her out to make up the numbers for a party.  There's serious grooming to do before our girl's up to the challenge - her state of misery has left her so thin that even her favourite Audrey Hepburn number doesn't cling the way it should.

At the soirée, she becomes entranced with a powerful married man, but it seems unlikely their paths will cross again.  Until a body is found - the gigolo victim is connected to her latest crush.
