Baksheesh by Esmahan Aykol Review-Post
Baksheesh-is tipping, charitable giving and certain forms of political corruption and bribery in the Middle East and South Asia.
Kati Hirschel is the owner of the only mystery book store in Istanbul. The landlady announces to her that the rent is being raised and then decides to pay baksheesh to the government officials for a new place. A man is found murdered in the apartment that she is interested in and she becomes a suspect in his murder.
I found this story to be a murder mystery with a light and sometimes comical tone to it depicting the Turkish way of life. That alone made the story more interesting and intriguing.
