Crime Fiction on a Euro Pass: Turkey

The last stop on Kerrie’s Crime Fiction on a Euro Pass is Turkey. The challenge has been to write posts linked to the country of the week. This time I’ve focused on the British author:

Barbara Nadel

Born in the East End of London, Barbara Nadel trained as an actress before becoming a writer. Now writing full-time, she has previously worked as a public relations officer for the National Schizophrenia Fellowship’s Good Companion Service and as a mental health advocate for the mentally disordered in a psychiatric hospital. She has also worked with sexually abused teenagers and taught psychology in schools and colleges, and is currently the patron of a charity that cares for those in emotional and mental distress.

She has been a regular visitor to Turkey for more than twenty years.

Her Turkish crime novels feature Inspector Cetin Ikmen. The list below is from Fantastic Fiction

1. Belshazzar’s Daughter (1999)

  1. Thanks for the information about Barbara Nadel, Margaret. Another author I’ve never tried but I can see I should. Thanks for your support of this meme.


  2. Margaret – Thanks for this interesting information about Nadel. She sounds like a fascinating person!


  3. I’ve read all but the very latest of these and they’re terrific – highly recommended. The regular characters are excellent, Suleyman a real spunk, the deptiction of the different ethnic and religious groups living in Istanbul and elsewhere in Turkey are fascinating.
