A Memento for Istanbul

†mit, Ahmet (tr. Rakesh Jobanputra)

£30.00

A thrilling tale which moves back and forth through time, from the early days of Byzantium to the thriving metropolis of Istanbul… A corpse is discovered at the base of the statue of Atatiirk in old Istanbul, an antique coin left in its hand. But it’s not to be the last corpse and the bodies soon begin to pile up and so the hunt for the killers begins. Seven murders, seven sovereigns, seven coins and seven ancient monuments, with one thread binding them all: the history of one of the world’s most mysterious and most dazzling cities. “The sea was shrouded in a mist, our boat hidden from view. Istanbul was lost in the mist. Only the minarets of Sultanahmet Mosque, the dome of the Hagia Sophia and the turrets ofTopkapi Palace were visible above the haze. The city seemed unblemished and pure, unharmed and untouched, the white mist veiling anything and everything which could blight the view. It was like a vision from an ancient myth emerging for a fleeting moment before the light of the day…
