Kayankaya Mystery Series, Book 2
Borrow Borrow Borrow

"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

Turkish detective Kemal Kayankaya might not know when it's recycling day, but now he has to help four eco-terrorists beat a murder rap...


Wisecracking PI Kemal Kayankaya cares more about sausage and beer than politics, but when he's hired to defend four eco-terrorists charged with murdering a chemical plant owner he finds himself stuck in the middle of Germany's culture wars. It doesn't take long for Kayankaya to realize that the whole situation stinks and that both the Left and the Right have blood on their hands. And is the fiery journalist Carla Reedermann dogging his steps because she smells a story, or is she after something more?

A hardboiled noir in the Chandler tradition that also provides a wry critique of contemporary racial and environmental politics, More Beer shows why Jakob Arjouni's series of Kayankaya novels has become a bestselling international sensation.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Reviews-
  • Richard Lipez, The Washington Post Praise for Kismet

    "As winning a noirish gumshoe as has swooped onto the mystery scene in some time."
  • Vikas Turakhia, The Plain Dealer (Cleveland) "In the emphasis on action and quck-jab dialogue, readers will notice an echo of James M. Cain and Raymond Chandler, but Arjouni's stories also brim with the absurd humor that made The Sopranos so entertaining."
  • The Independent "This lively, gripping book sets a high standard for the crime novel as the best of modern literature."
  • Der Stern (Germany) "A worthy grandson of Marlowe and Spade."
  • Tempo (UK) "Jakob Arjouni writes the best urban thrillers since Raymond Chandler."
  • L'Unità (Italy) "A genuine storyteller who beguiles his readers without the need of tricks."
  • SonntagsZeitung (Germany) "Arjouni is a master of authentic background descriptions and an original story teller."
  • El País (Spain) "Arjouni tells real-life stories, and they virtually never have a happy ending. He tells them so well, with such flexible dialogue and cleverly maintained tension, that it is impossible to put his books down."
  • Actuel (France) "His virtuosity, humor and feeling for tension are a ray of hope in literature on the other side of the Rhine."
  • La Depeche (France) "Pitch-black noir."
