Publisher Comments:

A fabulously rich and entertaining novel of detection and conspiracy in nineteenth-century Istanbul. Translated into thirty-one languages worldwide.

One bloody night in 1836: a young concubine is strangled in the sultan's harem, and a young cadet is butchered in the streets of Istanbul. Yashim the eunuch has just ten days to uncover a plot - and prevent a killing - that could bring the Ottoman Empire to its knees.
