When I read the premise of Treacherous Estate, I knew instantly that it was a book I had to read as well as a book I would love, and this is thanks to the themes alluded to throughout the premise with a strong one being a mystery. Mysteries, in general, are my go-to read but I love even more when they feature more themes than just a mystery and so when I started to read Treacherous Estate and learned that the book has this, I was thrilled, and it made me turn the pages even faster! I should also mention for those of you that do not know, that this is the second book I have read and reviewed by Behcet Kaya. The first book I read was called Murder on the Naval Base, and this book truly captivated me from start to finish and ensured that I would always now be excited about reading Kaya’s work.
