Product description


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

"Goodwin's is a gift akin to that of Jan Morris, the rare coming together of historical scholarship and curiosity about distant places with luminous writing." (Fouad Ajami, The New York Times Book Review)

"What is there not to like about a detective who enjoys cooking as much as he enjoys eating?" (The Financial Times)

"Crammed with mouth-watering descriptions of creamy pilafs and delicate meze." (The Washington Post)

About the Author

Jason Goodwin is a historian and award-winning crime writer whose historical mystery series featuring a eunuch sleuth from 19th century Istanbul has fans all over the world. He walked to Istanbul from the Baltic coast, and wrote Lords of the Horizons: A History of the Ottoman Empire, and five novels in the Yashim series. He received the Edgar Award for Best Novel The Janissary Tree, the first in the series, which has been translated into over forty languages. He lives in Dorset.
