    Istanbul, 1840: the young sultan Abdulmecid believes that Gentile Bellini’s vanished masterpiece, a portrait of Mehmet the Conqueror, may have resurfaced in Venice. But it’s not Yashim, the eunuch detective, who takes a ship across the Mediterranean. Instead, it’s his Polish ambassador friend, Palewski, disguised as an American art dealer. What begins as a simple inquiry soon turns into a murderous game of deception and suspense, played out among the faded palazzi and sluggish canals of the decaying city. Dealers, forgers, and aristocrats become fatally involved as the search for the Bellini portrait uncovers a threat to the stability of the Ottoman throne, and the peace of Europe. 286p.

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.
