Description
In three previous novels starring the sultan's investigator Yashim, including the Edgar Award winner The Janissary Tree, Jason Goodwin has taken us on stylish, suspenseful, and vibrant excursions into the 19th-century Ottoman Empire. But here the mystery of Istanbul runs deeper, as the admiral of the Ottoman fleet has defected to the Egyptians. Yashim must uncover the man's motives, and although Fevzi Ahmet is no stranger to him—it was Fevzi who taught the investigator his craft years ago—he is the only man whom Yashim has ever truly feared. Yashim's search draws him into the sultan's seraglio, a well-appointed world with an undercurrent of fear, ambition, and deep-seated superstition.

"Goodwin's masterful fourth mystery thriller ... (after The Bellini Card) finds his series hero, the eunuch Yashim, attempting to navigate treacherous political shoals following the death of Sultan Mahmut II in 1840.... While Goodwin excels at plotting, the book's main strength lies in the assured depiction of a nation restrained by a corrupt leadership far removed from the old traditions of transparency and justice."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
