Nuri Iskirlak, the esteemed Turkish scholar and philosopher of Joan Fleming's Gold Dagger–winning mystery When I Grow Rich, returns for another tale of adventure and international intrigue. When Nuri is enlisted by an old flame to search for her son, a student at Oxford who's suddenly gone missing, he must once again neglect his studies to play detective. This time he ventures far from home, and upon his arrival in England, Nuri quickly realizes that he's headed for a cultural clash between East and West as well as another dangerous encounter with drug smugglers. An action-packed combination of mystery, detection, and suspense, Nothing Is the Number When You Die crackles with page-turning excitement.
