A man's body, virtually decapitated, is found by the Bosphorus. His identity card names him as Rifat Berisha, an Albanian. The family is impenetrable but when Inspector Ikmen, whose mother was Albanian, consults his cousin, Samsun, he's left in little doubt that Berisha's death is likely to be the result of a fis, an implacable blood feud between rival Albanian families.

Sean Barrett skillfully adds calm to this potentially melodramatic story while applying his considerable talents to a diverse cast. When a decapitated body washes up from the Bosphorus, Inspector Ikmen quickly realizes that it's part of a FIS (a blood feud) among Albanian immigrants. Several violent subplots require Barrett to portray, with equal believability, an aristocratic gentleman, a young Albanian woman, a transvestite, and a Turkish-British family, among others. Finally, a fifty-year-old mystery is revealed due to Inspector's Ikmen's admirable persistence. This is the perfect choice for those who like strong doses of suspense and action.
