|From the Edgar Award-winning author of "The Janissary Tree, The Snake Stone," and "The Bellini Card" comes the fourth adventure of the famous investigator Yashim.|
From the Publisher:
Sleuth. Cook. Ottoman. Lover. Have you met Yashim yet? It's Istanbul in 1839, and as the new sultan installs his harem in the palace, the intrepid investigator Yashim is set adrift on the swirling currents of loyalty and betrayal. The dramatic treachery of Fevzi Ahmet, the admiral of the fleet, brings Yashim up against the one man he has ever hated?the only man he has ever feared. Drawn ever deeper into the closed and mysterious world of the Sultan's harem, Yashim must search for a secret that could save a life or destroy an empire. An Evil Eye is a heart-pounding mystery of exotic Istanbul and a riveting journey into a veiled realm.
"[S]umptuous...." - Marilyn Stasio 04/10/2011 "While Goodwin excels at plotting, the book's main strength lies in the assured depiction of a nation restrained by a corrupt leadership far removed from the old traditions of transparency and justice." (starred review) 02/21/2011
