"Inspector Yashim must search for an Polish prince who has been taken hostage by an Italian revolutionary cell"--
Quick View
It is 1836. Europe is modernizing and the Ottoman Empire must follow suit. But just as the sultan is poised to announce sweeping political change, a wave of grisly murders threatens the fragile balance of power in his court. What is behind the killings? Only one man can be trusted to find out: Investigastor Yashim. A man both brilliant and near-invisible in the world, an investigator who can walk within the great halls of the empire, in its streets, and even within its seraglios - because, of course, Yashim is a eunuch. Meanwhile, the trail of clues points to the Janissaries, who 400 years were the empire's guards - now a group of ruthless mercenaries at the margin of Ottoman society. 320p.
