The Snake Stone

Jason Goodwin





Istanbul, 1838. A new adventure for Yashim, the eunuch investigator.


In his European palace on the Bosphorus Straits, Sultan Mahmud II, architect of Ottoman reform, is dying and the city swirls with rumours and alarms.


As the body-count starts to rise, Yashim is embroiled in a race against time to uncover the startling truth behind a shadowy society dedicated to the revival of the Byzantine Empire, encountering along the way such vibrant characters as Lord Byron's doctor, and the Sultan's West Indies-born mother, the Valide.
