a eunuch abroad,
This review is from: The Bellini Card (Yashim the Ottoman Detective) (Paperback)
I decided to keep with yashim and go to Venice . La serenissima possibly the most convoluted of italy's cities historically speaking seemed like the perfect destination for Yashim. This time in search of a Bellini portrait of a sultan. This was good story but it lacked something for me possibly leaving Istanbul and spending so much time in Venice was a mistake. When yashim turns up in disguise in Venice I thought that Jason Goodwin had lost the plot , nearly but not quite. I will read the next story when it comes out.
