Such a lovely, many-threaded mystery. I really love White's detective, Kamil Pasha, too.
Well written, well researched. I just came back from 10 days in Istanbul and this book drew me right back to the city.
I highly recommend it.

Love these Ottoman mysteries
I didn't know what to expect when I first purchased the Sultan's Seal, but I loved the descriptions of life in and around Istanbul, palace intrigues and the complicated nuances of culture and gender mores. And I love the narrator's voice also. I was very happy to see this newest Abyssinian Proof which did not disappoint. Wonderful descriptions of the village and the ancient well and the tension between old and new. Great plot twists. Very enjoyable listen.
