Proving that the classic Hammet/Chandler private eye plot can be enriched in even the most exotic setting, Arjouni continues his pungent series about the Turkish-German detective Kemal Kayankaya. Like his creator, Kayankaya is the son of Turkish guest workers, and he gets very little respect from his adopted country. A client, an "average schmuck from Frankfurt's West End" named Weidenbusch, wants Kayankaya to find his missing Thai ladyfriend, who seems to have been kidnapped by gangsters preying on illegal aliens. But Jakob Arjouni, who has learned from the masters how to turn a story inside out until we almost forgot where we started, has plenty of twisty surprises in store. Arjouni's last Kayankaya mystery, And Still Drink More!, is also a good read. -- From Review
