This is a murder mystery set in Istanbul during the time of the Ottoman Empire. I loved the characters and the intricacies of the plot. It's the first in a series and I have read the next two books as well as this one, and enjoyed those too.

Thank you for the book and colourful card! :)

"A concubine is strangled in the Sultan’s palace harem, and a young cadet is found butchered in the streets of Istanbul. Delving deep into the city’s crooked alleyways, and deeper still into its tumultuous past, the eunuch Yashim discovers that some people will go to any lengths to preserve the traditions of the Ottoman Empire."
