Mosaic is a good title

The title Mosaic, along with the cover illustration, suggested to me that the book would delve into the culture of Istanbul, but this city is only one of the settings. The mosaic consists of a variety of cities, characters, and clues, all little pieces of a larger mystery. Journalist Fran, while living in Istanbul, falls for a mysterious stranger, who is later discovered murdered. Fran sets off on a quest to find his murderers, but becomes enmeshed in a web of characters all connected to a charitable organization which seems to be a cover for terrorist activities. Although the book was entertaining, I found the circumstances quite unbelievable, that Fran would happen to run into all the characters involved in this web of intrigue, in several different cities. The main character Fran calls it "synchronicity", but one needs to let go of the need for plausibility, because this much synchronicity is just not reasonable. The relationships among the characters was also just too inter-connected, and it was a little difficult remembering who was connected to whom. It was a pleasant read, but not overly exciting.
