Lefèvre, a French archaeologist, has arrived in Istanbul determined to uncover a lost Byzantine treasure. Yashim is commissioned to find out more about him. But when Lefèvre's mutilated body is discovered outside the French embassy, it turns out that there is only one suspect: Yashim himself.
Once again, Yashim finds himself in a race against time to uncover the startling truth behind a shadowy secret society dedicated to the revival of the Byzantine Empire, caught in a deadly game deep beneath the city streets, a place where the stakes are high - and betrayal is death.
'Goodwin is a recognised authority on the Ottoman Empire and a highly capable thriller writer to boot.'
'Steeped in Istanbul's polyglot cultural history, Goodwin's second ''Yashim the Eunuch'' mystery is a triumph of adrenalin-charged pursuit.' -- Financial Times
It's a pleasure to meet again the infinately civilised and
intelligent Yashim ... a rich mixture adding up to an excellent and
enjoyable crime novel. -- Literary Review
It's a spicy yarn - and an irresistable one ... What makes The
Snake Stone so enjoyable is the unassuming warmth of its enlightened hero. -- Financial Times
The second in a thrilling and entertaining series, Goodwin scored
-- The Herald
Yashim's second outing easily lives up to the promise of Goodwin's
earlier novel, The Janisarry Tree ... Goodwin's knowledge of Istanbul is
extraordinary ... makes a perfect summer read. -- The Sunday Times
