Product description

Review

"When you read a historical mystery by Jason Goodwin, you take a magic carpet ride to the most exotic place on earth." --Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"Escapist fiction at its most seductive." --Heather O'Donoghue, The Times Literary Supplement

"Goodwin's previous books took us into the alleys and byways of nineteenth-century Istanbul. This is an equally vivid and well-informed account of Venice in 1840 . . . The plot is lively and interesting; but the real delight in this book is the atmospheric portrait of a fascinating place." --Literary Review

"Wonderfully entertaining . . . [Goodwin] uses short, punchy chapters and vibrant, atmospheric prose to bring the glory days of the Ottoman capital to life." --Adam Woog, The Seattle Times on The Snake Stone

"Everything you could want from a novel--beautifully written, a cracking story, and, in the figure of Yashim the eunuch, a wonderfully seductive and original detective." --Kate Mose, author of Labyrinth on The Janissary Tree

About the Author

JASON GOODWIN is the Edgar Award–winning author of the Investigator Yashim series. The first five books—The Janissary Tree, The Snake Stone, The Bellini Card, An Evil Eye, and The Baklava Club—have been published to international acclaim, alongside Yashim Cooks Istanbul, a cookbook of Ottoman Turkish recipes inspired by the series. Goodwin studied Byzantine history at Cambridge and is the author of Lords of the Horizons: A History of the Ottoman Empire, among other award-winning nonfiction. He lives with his wife and children in England.
