Turkish delight by Barry Faulkner

Turkish Delight (Ben Nevis & the Gold Digger #1)

London private eye Ben Nevis, ex SAS/OCS/N14 gets a peculiar request from a new lady client, ‘kill my husband’. 

A few days later the husband appears in Ben’s London office with the request ‘kill my wife’. 

Ben has his partner the Gold Digger, take a good look into the pair, and some illegal international arms dealing is exposed with missiles going from the UK through Cyprus and Turkey to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard,  and on to terrorist cells in the Middle East. 

After a surprise visit from Ben’s old boss at MI6 Ben finds himself enrolled in a mission to stop the trade with help of the British SBS based in Cyprus who are to get him into Turkey to blow up the arms and then get him out again. 

But things don’t go to plan. 

It is a full action novel set in the present day with twists and turns bringing it to the final explosive conclusion.


Ben Nevis is working as a private investigator providing security and personal protection to his private clients. Occasionally he’s also a hired hitman. Alison Gold is a former Israeli Defence Force, working now as a successful extortionist. When a woman walked into Nevis’ his office and offered him a one million pounds to find and kill her husband, he enlists the help of Gold to complete this assignment. When suspicion arises and the evidence seem to be telling a much different story, Nevis and Gold decide to dig a little further.

This was a good read. One the keeps you on your toes from start to finish. The characters were fairly interesting, and I loved the operative-security job trope(?) and how well it was used in this book. I would say that this book is more on the crime fiction side, with an element of fast-paced action. The book is well-written– no wonder I was quickly immersed in the story of Nevis and Gold. The plot was filled with action, surprising twists, and a surprisingly unexpected ending. It’s one fans of the genre and action should definitely look out for!

3 stars.
