review 1: Mulle on Goodwini Yashimi-lood esimesest raamatust peale (mida ma kaasa soovitusel küll peale Istanbuli käiku päris poolkogemata lugema asusin) meeldinud. Nutikas eunuhh oma poolakast sõbraga ajaloolises Istanbulis seiklemas ja aeg-ajalt süüa tegemas on üks uuema krimikirjanduse ...

review 1: This series is a fascinating look at life in the Ottoman Empire in Istanbul, through the eyes of an investigator who is also a eunuch and loyal supporter of the regime. The main thing that makes this so interesting is that the author is a scholar of the Ottoman Empire, who has w...

review 1: As I have stated before in the previous novels, I love this historical fiction/mystery series! But I think the author may have gotten bored with his traditional formula and decided to try something new, which in my opinion didn't work. It may have been the setting (I'm just not a...

review 1: I always get so hungry when I"m reading Jason Goodwin's Inspector Yashim mysteries. He describes so deliciously all the foods he's cooking in his little tenement kitchen in 19th century venice. And the writing is excellent, the characters are interesting, the plots make sense pre...
