Happy birthday, Turk! by Jakob Arjouni( Book )

71 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in 14 languages and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like his literary forefathers Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade, he is a loner, but as a Turk, not because he has an option. Yet he is not unarmed; with an irreverent and hilarious sense of humor Kayakankaya goes about his search, all the while drinking too much, encountering obnoxious policemen and easy women. After twists and turns he finally runs into a drug ring built on the exploitation of Turkish immigrants. The influence of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett on Jakob Arjouni is impossible to miss; the plot moves quickly, the action thrills, the characters are unforgettable and the milieu is painted so realistically that it immediately comes to life for the reader

Kayankaya is determined to track down their identities, when he realizes that he himself is being pursued by a faceless and utterly ruthless criminal gang. A new element has broken into the established order of Frankfurt gangland: battle-hardened Croatian nationalists. And when Kayankaya rescues Bosnian teenager Leila from a refugee hostel, the stakes get even higher
