Publisher's Summary

Set amid the beauty and decadence of the Ottoman Empire, Lady Emily's latest adventure is full of intrigue, treachery, and romance.

Looking forward to the joys of connubial bliss, newlyweds Lady Emily and Colin Hargreaves, diplomats of the British Empire, set out toward Turkey for an exotic honeymoon. But on their first night in the city, a harem girl is found murdered, strangled in the courtyard of the Sultan's lavish Topkapi Palace. Sir Richard St. Clare, an Englishman who works at the embassy in Constantinople, is present and recognizes the girl as his own daughter who was kidnapped twenty years earlier. Emily and Colin promise the heartbroken father that they'll find her killer, but as the investigation gains speed, they find that appearance can be deceiving - especially within the confines of the seraglio.

As a woman, Emily is given access to the forbidden world of the harem and quickly discovers that its mysterious, sheltered walls offer no protection from a ruthless murderer. As the number of victims grows, Emily must rely on her own sharp wits in a heart-stopping finale if she is to stop a killer bend on exacting vengeance no matter how many innocent lives he leaves in his wake.

Entertaining Story

I enjoy the Lady Emily series and I forgot when I ordered this one on audible that I had listened to it before when I first started the series but I had forgotten the ending so I listening again. Ms. Alexander has improved; I had forgotten how irritating Lady Emily was at the beginning of the series. There were times I wanted to slap her to quit whining and going on and on but thankfully as the series increased, Lady Emily's character did also. The ending was nicely finished but I felt it was a little rush to tidy up the loose ends which really needed some story details before just slapping a band aid on it and it was finished.

Please Don't Use This Narrator Again

I'm sorry Justine Eyre was chosen. This may be a good book, but from the beginning I could hardly listen to the Narrator. Please find another profession.

I wish all Tasha Alexander books were read by Tasha Amato! No there's a wonderful reader! All her "voices" sound genuine and real.

I love this series!

I enjoyed this book as I have all in the series I have listened to. I felt I knew the characters as I listened to my first one. I find the reader to be excellent and enjoy the pace of the stories. I wish I could have read them in order but find it easy to adjust to the times in their lives. Highly recommend.
