He calls on the only man he can trust to find the culprits. The author of the Ottoman history Lords of the Horizon here introduces a fictional hero of the late days of the empire. Yashim is both brilliant and near-invisible in his world, an investigator at ease in the great halls of the empire, in its streets, and even within its harems a thing possible only because Yashim is a eunuch. And what he finds implicates the outcast Janissaries, the former elite guard of the empire. " . Hard Cover. As New/As New.
