Halfway through the evening, one of the actors is found actually dead in the room where Agatha Christie used to stay when she was in Istanbul. Walking in the steps of the great, Ikmen experiences fear and hatred which have echoes deep in his own and his country's past.

What readers are saying about Deadline:

'The plot is ingenious and involves a mystery within a mystery'

'An intriguing read with lots of twists and turns right up to the end'

'A true must read for fans of crime fiction'
