Abstract:

It is 1836 and before the Sultan announces sweeping changes, a wave of murders threatens the fragile balance of power in his court. Who is behind them? Only one intelligence agent can be trusted to find out: Yashim Lastname - a eunuch. Leaning on the wisdom of a dyspeptic Polish ambassador, a transsexual dancer, and a Creole-born queen mother, he introduces us to the Janissaries. For 400 years, they were the empire's elite soldiers, but they grew too powerful, and ten years ago, the Sultan had them crushed. Are the Janissaries staging a brutal comeback?
