Description
In Jenny White's second Kamil Pasha mystery (following The Sultan's Seal, a finalist for the Ellis Peters Historical Crime Award), 19th-century Istanbul is the stage for a conspiracy to steal an ancient and potentially powerful reliquary known as the Proof of God. With the Ottoman Empire plagued by thefts of antiquities from mosques and churches that then appear for sale in Europe, secular magistrate Kamil Pasha is under pressure to break the smuggling ring, amid rising tensions between Christians and Muslims.

"A mysterious, holy grail–like object, a document with the potential to bring about peace between the different peoples of the world, is at the center of White's erudite second novel.... Kamil—smart, brave and compassionate—proves an appealing sleuth. Intriguing love interests include the daughter of the leader of the strange Abyssinian sect to which the reliquary belongs. White, a professor of anthropology, clearly knows her period and place."—Publishers Weekly
