By the author of The Janissary Tree, this novel asks whether investigator Yashim has met his match at last. We go on a dark adventure which whirls us through the majesty and corruption of Istanbul in 1842. For three amateur Italian revolutionaries kicking their heels overseas, La Piuma offers what sounds like the perfect job. Their shadowy controller wants a simple hit, to strike a blow for Italian unity and liberation, but killing is for professionals. So when the assassination turns into a kidnapping, the young Italians have a heap of trouble on their hands, but when trouble turns to bloody murder, Yashim is on their trail. Yashim has no idea who La Piuma is and he is in no mood to put up a fight as he has fallen in love! His shocking discoveries lead him to the most dangerous situation of his career. A novel which conjures Istanbul in all its glory and complexity, rooted in a struggle for power that spills across Europe. 272pp with glossary, US first edition 2014.
