What is the reason for “hot spots” bearing overabundance of beautiful women? Old Sins, New Sinners gives a perfectly logical answer, at least concerning Izmir, Turkey.
The novel is satisfying at the level of a police drama, following two attractive and romantically adventures detectives, who pursue murderers of an elderly carpet salesman. But there is so much more. Short anecdotes light up along the convoluted track that the romantically inclined lieutenant Parrish follows, delightfully illuminating subjects ranging from the above mentioned “clumpy” distribution of beautiful women to the ancient story of Argonauts.
A reader follows the lieutenant into secreted corners of the Ottoman Empire, still the world’s superpower a hundred years ago, now hardly registering in consciousness of the Western public. The whole exotic world opens up in the Middle East, thoroughly ignored by the mainstream press in favor of gnomes overcrowding the pages of newspapers.
Old Sins, New Sinners is a well-written cop novel guaranteed to shorten a flight or entertain at a beach, but I enjoyed it even more for its ability to surprise me with the things I didn’t know about, delivered in a graceful entertaining way.
A male reader cannot miss the author’s appreciation of female anatomy; Izmir or New Orleans, Gene Parola has a good eye for sex appeal and I salute him for that.
Ah, just buy a book and enjoy!

Great story! This a must read! I can picture this on TV or movies. Gene Parola brings romance, intrigue, action, into this story. He also gives us an interest into the Ottoman Empire and the people of Turkey.Looking forward to a sequel.
