Summary
When the new sultan of Istanbul voices a desire to own a rare painting of Mehmet the Conqueror by Bellini, Investigator Yashim enlists his friend Stanislaw Palewski, the Polish Ambassador, to travel to Venice to locate the painting while posing as a rich American named Signor Brett.
Critique
Third historical to feature the eunuch Yashim as an investigator, but it can stand alone. Intellectual rather than fast-paced. Complexly-plotted with intriguing characters and great descriptions of Venice and the time period.
