"Kemal Kayankaya is the ultimate outsider among hard-boiled private eyes."
--Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

OVER 1 MILLION COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE

To rescue a kidnapped prostitute, Kemal Kayankaya must face some of Germany's most depraved and dangerous criminals. Fortunately, some of them are his friends...

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 so- cial injustice that make his novels rise above the rest.
