The story stops abrupt with her death leaving a couple of suspects: 1) the husband she refuses to divorce who has connections with the Clintons, 2) Army connections because she is digging in experiments 3) a violent ex patient.
Exactly that ending made me wonder if this was indeed based on a real person and the book a kind of "I accuse". And after some digging I found out that the real Aylin was Aylin Radomisli-Cates, married to Kelvin Kline's father in law. And indeed this Aylin was found dead as described. The writer a relative of hers. I ran some Turkish newspaper interviews through Google translate. It seems not all the familymembers agreed with the picture of Aylin in the book.
Although I do not like the book as a novel (no depth) it still had me mesmerised because it is a real murder case and I have a law degree. I wished I knew - now 20 years after the murder - who had done it. But even her ex is now dead.
This is the story of her life and tragic death. A must read.
