Black Day at the Bosphorus Cafe - (fictional) tragedy in Shopping City

The third Haringey-set Rex Tracey novel opens with a dramatic and tragic scene as a young girl plunges in flames to her death from the balcony of Wood Green Shopping City.

Suspicious that it's not the political suicide it's made out to be by police, journalist Tracey gets on the case, digging into her family, discovering a lot about Kurdish, Turkish and Cypriot history along the way and uncovering all sorts of odd things happening at the fictional "Haringgay and Tottenham" council. 

As in his first two novels, there's a cracking plot, piles of intrigue and a great cast of characters to be found from Turnpike Lane to Muswell Hill, Wightman Road to Philip Lane. I'm a huge fan! 

Get your copy at the Big Green Bookshop, and you can also get £3 tickets to see Matt Baylis there on Thurs 11 June.

I love this series - I've bought all three and am currently reading 'The Tottenham Outrage' - the second Rex Tracey novel. I came across them at The Big Green Bookshop - thoroughly recommended.

And now I'm just about to finish Black Day at the Bosphorus Cafe and am already feeling at a loss. Matt, please write another Rex Tracey novel and soon!
