5.0 out of 5 starsIkmen and Suleyman (really Nadel) at their best!
Reviewed in the United States on January 7, 2020
Nadel is such a gifted writer. Several years ago, a beloved friend of mine introduced me to her. One of her gifts is that each novel is a stand alone and this is no exception. A Knife to the Heart is yet another page turner and it took me almost the entirety of the book to figure out the murderer's motive. WOW! Nadel weaves the magic of mystery with the harsh realities of life in a culture that's brimming with sub-plots and political innuendos. No matter what your beliefs are, A Knife to the Heart makes you wish for a few miracles to save Ikmen's tormented soul, and that of his highly sexy and trust worthy sidekick Suleyman.
I have loved all the Ikmen series and the latest one is no exception. Once again, Barbara Nadel takes us into the heart of Istanbul and you can feel, smell and taste it. This story, with the usual familiar lovable characters, is compelling, moving and vivid. I do hope that Barbara will be bringing out another Ikmen mystery soon!
4.0 out of 5 starsRetirement has not stopped Ikmen doing what he does best

I have read all the Inspector Ikmen books and have enjoyed them all. They were getting a bit samey but now that Ikmen has retired this has added a new dimension to these great novels. Why have we not seen Ikmen on our screens yet?

I've been disappointed by the last couple of Ikmen books, but this one is right back on form. And how unhappy it is to read about the disintegration of the secular Turkish society and it's replacement by fundamental religion.

I found the book hard to follow. Living in northern Cyprus has enabled me to understand how to pronounce the names of the characters but they were too many and the story line too complicated to follow.
