Product description

Review

"A work of dazzling beauty...the rare coming together of historical scholarship and curiosity about distant places with luminous writing...a meditation on a vanished world that hovers like an apparition over today's grim headlines." --The New York Times Book Review (Front page) on Lords of the Horizons: A History of the Ottoman Empir

"An unusual, exotic historical mystery that reads like literature and moves like a thriller." --George Pelecanos, author of Drama City

"In this engaging novel, the reader is treated to a history lesson about the Ottoman Empire of the nineteenth century, a travelogue that brings the ancient city of Istanbul to life and a spellbinding story all in one. . . . This novel will keep you engrossed from start to finish." --The Roanoke Times

"A triumph of the first order." --BookPage
