*THIS 2019 EDITION INCLUDES EDITORIAL REVISIONS*

"A page-turner . . . This peek behind the walls of the seraglio will seduce lovers of large-scale historical fiction." - Booklist

HE COULD HAVE HAD ANY WOMAN IN THE EMPIRE. HE WANTED ONLY ONE.

Suleiman the Magnificent ruled an empire of thirty million people; his army conquered all who stood against him; he rebuilt Istanbul in marble and made it one of the greatest cities in the world. In his personal harem he kept three hundred of the empire’s most beautiful women.

But his greatest danger lay not outside the walls - but within.

Despite its luxury, his harem was virtually a prison. For his concubines, the only way to a better life was to find a way into his bed and bear him a son. But the young Sultan gave all his attention to his favorite, Gulbehar.

Until one day, when a new arrival from Russia takes fate into her own hands. She is clever and she is ruthless. And she has a plan to displace her - and become queen.

What will happen if he forsakes his harem for the love of just one woman, and marries her in defiance of his pashas, his nation and the centuries-old code of his people?

This is the astonishing story of Suleiman, the one they called the Magnificent, and the woman he loved.

From medieval Venice to the slave markets of Algiers, from the mountains of Persia to the forbidden seraglio of the Ottoman's greatest sultan, this is a tale of passion and intrigue in a world where nothing is really as it seems.

HAREM has been a megaseller right across Europe. It was a runaway hit in Germany and has since been sold into 18 languages.

What readers and reviewers are saying about HAREM

"...masterfully written and you find yourself entered into the worlds and lives of the characters. I couldn’t put this book down!! If you enjoy historical fiction, this is of a time, era and culture that I have not seen frequently written about.” Susan L.Carrier *****

If you haven’t read one of Colin Falconer’s novels, then I promise you are in for a real roller-coaster ride of never ending intrigue ... a spectacular, haunting tale of malice, obsession, and zeal set in the magnificent Harem of Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent ...” – History and Women

"... an epic tale on a grand scale. I could not put it down." - Paul Fields.*****

"Fantastic storytelling. loved this. the characters were so real." - Connie B*****

About the Author

"I was 18 years old, I'd just left school and got a job in London, working in an insurance company. I was working inside - in an office! My mother thought that was like being CEO of Shell Oil. "I was late one morning, I took a short cut through the church yard to the station to catch my train. I'd just finished reading The Sun Also Rises the night before; and here I was looking at all these gravestones, I remember thinking: Gee, we're not here very long. Better make it count. "So I went home, told my mother I was quitting my job and going to Morocco. She damned near fainted." After travelling through Spain and Africa, Colin hitch-hiked across Europe to Sweden to visit a girlfriend he'd met the year before on a football tour. When he finally got back home, he was still restless. After failing to make the grade as a professional football player, he travelled around Asia; his experiences in Bangkok and India later inspired his thriller VENOM, and his adventures in the jungles of the Golden Triangle of Burma and Laos were also filed away for later, the basis of his OPIUM series about the underworld drug trade.
