A killer with means but no motive, and the body count is rising! A serial killer is stalking the streets of Istanbul. A man is found dead in a hotel room, a single stab wound in his heart. Could he be a victim of the "Peeper," a murderer whose target up until now has been gay men? The body of the man is delivered to forensics, but it is entirely clean. Has someone tampered with it? Inspector Mehmet Suleyman finds himself under increasing pressure from his contact at the Turkish Secret Service to keep his findings to himself. Meanwhile a young carpet dealer, on the brink of a huge sale, is found dead in the mangled remains of his Jeep. The deal would have made him—the carpet he wanted to sell used to belong to Lawrence of Arabia. Inspector Cetin Ikmen finds out that just as the carpet's rich history is stained by bloodshed, so the young man hides a sinister and deadly secret!
