Excellent Read, Insights to Turkey, March 5, 2008
By Bonnie Neely
Voice of Conscience by Behcet Kaya is a novel which begins with the main character in Turkey, narrowly escaping being murdered along with the rest of his family just before his sister's wedding. The intrigue and plotting of revenge follow this young man as he grows up, falls in love with and American woman, moves to California, and becomes a very successful business man. The book gives beautiful descriptions of the landscape in each of the places as we follow the character, Ozcomert. I found the way of life in the Turkish society very fascinating and also frightening. The book is a good read and reveals why revenge never pays.
