Love is never easy—especially when your girlfriend is an illegal Thai prostitute who has been kidnapped (again) by a gang of sex traffickers. Fortunately for the hapless fiancé, wisecracking gumshoe Kemal Kayankaya is on the case. The son of a Turkish garbage collector, he knows a thing or two about living in the ethnic fringes of the ugliest German city of them all: Frankfurt. Kayankaya plunges into the city’s underbelly, where the police don’t care if you live or die, and the powerful view an illegal alien as just another paycheck. One Man, One Murder populates its pages with unforgettable characters, whip-smart dialogue, and a connoisseur’s collection of grim details. But it is Arjouni’s dead-on description of contemporary Europe’s racial politics, vacuous nationalism, and social injustice that make his novels rise above the rest.

Summary

Love is never easy—especially when your girlfriend is an illegal Thai prostitute who has been kidnapped (again) by a gang of sex traffickers. Fortunately for the hapless fiancé, wisecracking gumshoe Kemal Kayankaya is on the case. The son of a Turkish garbage collector, he knows a thing or two about living in the ethnic fringes of the ugliest German city of them all: Frankfurt.

Kayankaya plunges into the city’s underbelly, where the police don’t care if you live or die, and the powerful view an illegal alien as just another paycheck. One Man, One Murder populates its pages with unforgettable characters, whip-smart dialogue, and a connoisseur’s collection of grim details.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A zippy, deliciously dirty tour of legal fleshpots and low-down scams victimizing illegal aliens…Plotted with verve and written with passion.” Kirkus Reviews
“This lively, gripping book sets a high standard for the crime novel as the best of modern literature.” Independent (London)
“A gripping caper and a haunting indictment of the madness of nationalism, illuminated by brilliant use of language: magnificent.” Guardian (London)
“This is true hard-boiled detective fiction—realistic, violent and occasionally funny, with a hero who lives up to the best traditions of the genre.” Daily Telegraph (London)
“Acidly funny…Kemal Kayankaya is the ultimate outsider among hard-boiled private eyes.” New York Times Book Review
