9780571239955: The Baklava Club (Yashim the Ottoman Detective)

Join Investigator Yashim for a final exotic escapade in this rich Edgar Award-winning series

In four previous novels, Jason Goodwin's Inspector Yashim, the eunuch detective, has led us through stylish, suspenseful, and colorful mysteries in the Istanbul of the Ottoman Empire. Now, in The Baklava Club, Yashim returns for his final adventure-and his most thrilling yet.
Three naïve Italian liberals, exiled in Istanbul, have bungled their instructions to kill a Polish prince-instead, they've kidnapped him and absconded to an unused farmhouse. Little do they realize that their revolutionary cell has been penetrated by their enemies, who are passing along false orders under the code name La Piuma, the Feather.
It falls to Yashim to unravel all this-he's convinced that the prince is alive and that the Italians have hidden him somewhere. But there are just a few problems: He has no idea who La Piuma is, and he's in no mood to put up a fight-he's fallen in love! As he draws closer to the farmhouse and to the true identity of La Piuma, what Yashim discovers leaves him shocked and in the most dangerous situation of his career.
Goodwin has an eye for detail like no other, and in The Baklava Club he conjures Istanbul in all its glorious exoticism. This is a breathtaking, extraordinary conclusion to one of the most beloved series in mystery fiction, and its ending will leave you truly astonished.

About the Author:

Jason Goodwin is the Edgar Award–winning author of the Investigator Yashim series. The first four books―The Janissary Tree, The Snake Stone, The Bellini Card, and An Evil Eye―have been published to international acclaim. Goodwin studied Byzantine history at Cambridge and is the author of Lords of the Horizons: A History of the Ottoman Empire, among other award-winning nonfiction. He lives with his wife and children in England.

From Booklist:

Goodwin, an Ottoman Empire expert, introduced his historical series set in early nineteenth-century Istanbul in 2006 with The Janissary Tree, which won an Edgar for Best First Novel. The five novels in this series (this is purported to be the last) take a thin slice of Ottoman history, from 1836 to 1842. Yet, readers of the series learn, this slice is jam-packed with, well, byzantine levels of intrigue. The man who can unravel many of these plots and counterplots is Yashim, a eunuch detective. Here the action in Istanbul centers on the putative murder of a Polish prince. Yashim suspects the prince is still alive but hidden and in great danger. Two visitors, both women, afford Yashim the opportunity to play tour guide in Istanbul (one of the best parts of the novel) and to dispense historical side notes—for example, the fact that Viking warriors formed the imperial bodyguard in Byzantine times. Much of the plot and many references, though, are murky. Don’t sail to this Byzantium before reading the other novels in the series. --Connie Fletcher
