"A sinuous novel . . . Mr. Goodwin uses rich historical detail to elevate the books in this series far above the realm of everyday sleuthing. . . . Yashim moves charmingly across the book's complicated landscape. Whether he is stopping to cook, chat, cogitate, interrogate, or renew old acquaintances at the harem, he is a detective with a difference . . . a warmly appealing character."--Janet Maslin, "The New York Times"

"Wonderfully entertaining . . . Goodwin uses short, punchy chapters and vibrant, atmospheric prose to bring the glory days of the Ottoman capital to life."--Adam Woog, "The Seattle Times
""With his second effort as intricate and delightful as the first, Goodwin takes his rightful place among such distinguished British historical mystery writers as Lindsay Davis and the late Edith Pargeter."--"Publishers Weekly"
