UK Kirkus review

As crime fiction, this novel treads the well-worn mean streets familiar to readers since Chandler and Hammett. But the story played out in those violent streets is as up to date as this morning's newspaper. Kemal Kayankaya is a German of Turkish origin, which means he is already an outsider, already familiar with the casual racism of Germany today. But he is also a seedy and mostly out-of-work private investigator in the classic mould, as fast with his tongue as he is with his fists, and his latest case brings him up against racism and corruption as never before. For he is hired to find the Thai girlfriend of an artist, a girl who has disappeared in the midst of seeking the right forged papers to help her stay on in Germany illegally. Kayankaya's investigations take him through obstructive officialdom and Frankfurt brothels to find that something very sinister is happening to young female immigrants and asylum seekers.
