Another jolly good read as Yashim encounters Greek history, Scottish doctors, Albanian watermen and a French femme fatale.

The third Yashim the Eunuch mystery, in which the action takes place in Venice. As enjoyable as expected (ie it was).

I’ve realised that there are not enough hours in the day for me to write not terribly insightful summaries of each of the books that I read, so from now on they will be super succinct or zip…. and in this case: murder mystery set in 19th century Istanbul; very good historical crime in an exotic setting. I will be reading more of these Yashim the Eunuch mysteries.
