Once again an excellent crime caper from Jenny White. I found myself snatching time to read this and read it in a couple of days. Once again we follow the hero, local magistrate Kamil Pasha as he attempts to solve the crimes of murder and smuggling. Set in Istanbul in 1887, this is a quality historical crime novel and extremely enjoyable escapism. This has enough in it to make it a reading group selection but it would raise the thorny issue of religion! Oh and once again there is the sniff of romance!
