One Death to Die: A Kayankaya Mystery
Sri Dao, a Thai girl smuggled into Frankfurt for its flourishing sex trade, has vanished without a trace, and her fiance is desperate to find her. Kayankaya, the orphaned son of a Turkish locksmith turned German garbage collector, is as hardboiled as Philip Marlowe, as smart-mouthed as Easy Rawlins. As Kayankaya unravels the mystery of Sri Dao's disappearance, he leads the reader on a breathless chase through the seedy underbelly of a modern metropolis - its world of illegal aliens, corrupt cops, hustlers, and pimps no different from that of the urban jungle in any major US city, its hapless "undocumented" victims subject to the same heartless pattern of greed and hate. And who else but Kayankaya, himself the butt of the racist taunts of his compatriots, would know how to respond to the challenges of trying to survive in the margins of society?
