Product details

'I don't remember pulling the trigger; I only heard the gunshot. And then I saw a mouth opening, as if to speak, a face contorted, one hand in the air...And then a body falling ...' A man retires to a sun-baked Turkish town for a quiet life. But he finds a world of suspicion, paranoia and violence. The town has made a murderer of him. The question is, who did he kill? Led by a deeply untrustworthy narrator, Ahmet Altan's international bestseller pulls us into a world of desire, ambition and death. A detective story turned on its head, Endgame is sensual, compelling and laced with a dreamlike logic reminiscent of Paul Auster. Endgame heralds Ahmet Altan as one of the most exciting literary voices to have emerged in years.
