History and suspense in Istanbul.

by ExecEditor on Aug 16, 2008

Superb historical mystery -thriller which combines historical scholarship with engaging characters, offering rare insight into a vanished world with the ambiance of Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca. Goodwin's first novel is brilliant and richly embellished by research for his previous non-fiction books " Lords of the Horizon: A History of the Ottoman Empire," and " On Foot to the Golden Horn: A Walk to Istanbul." Absolutely a delightful and entertaining work of fiction that will leave you wanting more. This could be a great movie.


Great 1st in a series

by Tackitt on Jul 19, 2007

I'm hoping that the author will write additional mysteries in this series. The author suceeds in re-creating a past time and city. I was reminded of Steve Saylor's Roman mystery novel series. If you enjoy Saylor's books, you'll enjoy this book.
