JASON GOODWIN    Book Number: 87068    Product format: Unknown

On a bloody night in 1836, a young concubine is strangled in the imperial harem, and a cadet is butchered in the streets of Istanbul. The city is set to explode, and Yashim the eunuch finds he has just ten days left to prevent a killing that could bring the empire to its knees. Delving deep into the city's crooked alleyways and deeper still into its tumultuous past, Yashim discovers that some people will go to any lengths to preserve the traditions of the Ottoman Empire. Brilliantly evoking Istanbul, this is a bloody, witty and fast paced literary thriller with a spectacular cast. The Sunday Telegraph said, "This congenial murder mystery, blending historical scholarship and deft characterisation, is upmarket crime fiction with a smile on its face." The book was named as Best Novel of the Year in 2007 and has been translated into over 30 languages. Here it is abridged on to four CDs running time four hours and read by the actor Andrew Sachs.
