Janissary Tree by Jason Goodwin

Book Description

A 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.

Yashim Cooks Istanbul: Culinary Adventures in the Ottoman Kitchen by Jason Goodwin Yashim Cooks Istanbul: Culinary Adventures in the Ottoman Kitchen, Hardback (October 2016)

An Ottoman Turkish cookbook featuring recipes inspired by Jason Goodwin's Yashim Istanbul mystery series, organised by the novels into five chapters, from The Janissary Tree to The Baklava Club. Illustrated recipes for vegetables, meat, meze, soups, puddings and pickles, along with book extracts and illustrations of Ottoman Istanbul.

Baklava Club by Jason Goodwin 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 by Jason Goodwin 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.

Bellini Card by Jason Goodwin Bellini Card, Paperback / softback (March 2010)

Yashim, the eunuch detective who first appeared in the internationally acclaimed "The Janissary Tree," returns in this historical mystery set in 1840 Istanbul as he investigates a missing Bellini masterpiece.
