Thumps up for Goodwin!,
This review is from: The Bellini Card (Yashim the Ottoman Detective) (Paperback)
The Bellini Card is another delightful tale of Yashim the detective eunuch in service of the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century.
In this book his friend the Polish friend Palewski plays a very prominent role as he heads out to Venice on a mission for his friend Yashim.
Goodwin manages to bring the decaying Venice to life under Hapsburg rule, full of deceit, murders and plots.
If you are a fan of Yashim it's a must read. If you are new to the series start with the first book, The Janissary Tree and get to know this brilliant creation of Goodwin from the very start.
Thumps up for Goodwin!
