She solicits the sleuthing skills of our detective, who reluctantly gets involved only when Gönül is named as a suspect. It soon emerges that Uncle Muhittin is not the only victim to have suffered the indignity of a crushed head and a posthumous makeover. As the investigation unfolds, issues of repressed sexuality and sexual identity arise...
