The torture and murder of a prominent businesswoman launches a police investigation that ruffles the collar of the gigantic city of Istanbul. Inspector Levent, the man the department calls when discretion is demanded, uses all his skills to make his way through a maze of sex and hot money, obscured at every turn by the realities of power. When he reaches the pinnacle of society, the discoveries that he makes provide a scintillating top-down view of Turkey, the Moslem country on the verge of entry into the EU.

A wealthy successful feminist sliced and diced? A killer who talks to the police online? An Inspector of Homicide who is a gourmet and budding media personality? Incest, bigotry, and the contradictions of a world that straddles two continents and even more cultures? Graveyard Eyes has these things, plus a concentration on character and place that is the strength of Chacko’s novels. Meet Inspector Onur Levent as he follows a trail of blood and money up the social ladder to its international ending on an island in the Sea of Marmara.
It’s one thing to write about the rich and famous, and another to understand them. Chacko, who lives in Istanbul, is one of the few people who can take the reader into a world that in its own way is as private as the harems of the Ottoman sultans. From the call girls of the super rich to corrupt government officials force-fed hot money, the portrait that emerges in Graveyard Eyes is of an enormous center of trade and duplicity that stands at the exact crossroads of Europe and Asia.From the Author:
It’s hard to know where a city of fifteen million people begins and where it ends. At the water’s edge is a good guess. Istanbul, which used to command the routes to and from the Black Sea, now runs from the Bosporus to the Dardenelles and covers all spaces between.
Luckily, it’s a city with little violent crime for the size of its population. For the ones that do break out, there’s Inspector Levent, who knows every steep switchback road, the sexual preferences, feuds and dialects of every neighborhood. But most of all, the things the killers always leave behind.
