#Spotlight - An Oriental Murder by Jane Bastin @JaneJanebastin @rararesources @crookedcatbooks

I was meant to be bringing to you today a book review of An Oriental Murder, but I put the wrong date in my diary so I will be bringing it to you at a later date. Whilst I can not bring you my review today, I do get to shout out about the book instead – this is perfect for Agatha Christie fans and for those who know me, know I love Agatha Christie….let us check out why!

The book was published on 12th July, so lets read a bit about it first…



The Pera Palas hotel in Istanbul, Turkey plays host to the Agatha Christie Writers’ Congress when real life imitates fiction. The bodies of the Prime Minister and his occasional mistress are found dead in one of the hotel’s locked rooms surrounded by bodyguards. Seemingly, no one could get in or out, and yet…

Inspector Sinan Kaya is convinced that foreign agents are culpable and that the murders are linked to the recent spate of killings of Turkish government officials.

Within this complicated, crime-riddled city, Sinan Kaya’s moral compass never falters. Not concerned with threats of dismissal from the force, he cuts his own path through the investigation, determined to uncover the truth.

An Oriental Murder is a tale of espionage and murder set against the backdrop of beautiful Istanbul, the ancient city where east and west meet
