About the Book

Istanbul, 1838. Maximilien Lefèvre, a French archaeologist, arrives in the city determined to uncover a lost Byzantine treasure, and immediately rumours start circulating about what his true motives might be. Yashim the Eunuch is hired to investigate him, but then Lefèvre's mutilated body is discovered, and it turns out that there is only one suspect: Yashim himself. Jason Goodwin's second Yashim mystery puts him at the forefront of historical crime fiction.
