The sultan in Istanbul has heard whispers that his long-lost portrait of Mehmet the Conquerer has turned up in the hands of a Venetian, and he's desperate to get it back. Palewski finds a mysterious killer on the loose, and tries to maneuver the labyrinth of art dealers and aristocrats in 19th century Venice as he tries to find the painting without getting killed in the process.

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.
