A beautiful young man has been found dead in one of the city’s neighborhoods. It’s sad, perhaps tragic, but it should also be a simple case: there are signs of drug abuse, rumors of prostitution, and a local family has reported a missing son. Unfortunately, this is Istanbul, where few things are as simple as they appear, and the past has a way of intruding on the present. To unravel the riddle, the brandy-loving Inspector Ikmen will have to grapple not only with the residue of the century-old Armenian genocide, but also with an even older legacy that stretches back to the heyday of the Ottoman Empire.

Originally published in the UK as A Chemical Prison, The Ottoman Cage continues Barbara Nadel’s remarkable series of Istanbul in which the labyrinthine and multicultural city itself, with its layered past, is an ever-present character.
