Janissary Tree by Jason Goodwin
Book DescriptionA concubine is strangled in the Sultan's palace harem, and a young cadet is found butchered in the streets of Istanbul. It is up to the eunuch Yashim to delve deep into the city's crooked alleyways, and deeper still into its tumultuous past. Brilliantly evoking Isanbul in the 1830s, "The Janissary Tree" is a bloody, witty and fast-paced literary thriller with a spectacular cast.

Baklava Club, Paperback (July 2015)
In nineteenth-century Istanbul, a Polish prince has been kidnapped. Yashim is convinced that the prince is alive. As he draws closer to the prince's whereabouts and to the true identity of La Piuma, Yashim finds himself in the most treacherous situation of his career: can he rescue the prince along with his romantic dreams?
Evil Eye, Paperback (May 2012)
When the body of a Russian agent is found down a monastery well, Yashim knows exactly who to blame. Fevzi Ahmet Pasha, commander of the Ottoman fleet. Years ago, when Yashim first entered the sultan's service, Fevzi Ahmet was his mentor. Ruthless, cruel, and - in Yashim's eyes - ultimately ineffective, he is the only man who makes him afraid.
