The Turkish Connection

By Rik Stone

Genre: Thriller

Book Description

Mehmet battles to survive the murky Istanbul of 1951 on a daily basis while being forced to learn the skills of thievery and violence alongside the other street children. Evenings come and he curls up under a stinking jetty in a waterway off the Bosporus Strait, yearning to break free from the life inflicted on him by his drunken, womanizing father, little knowing that his rotting body lies at the bottom of those same waters.

Adulthood comes before Mehmet finds out that it wasn’t fate that had taken control of his life as a boy, but a very real nemesis. Is it too late? Can he yet turn things around and get his life back?

Review

What a chilling read.  This book will make you think and keep you coming back for more. 

Mehmet is an amazing character. All that he goes through and endures, is truly heart wrenching!! 

This is a very well researched and compelling novel that stays with you long after you turn the last page.
