The new Benjamin January novel from the best-selling author
RAN AWAY. So began a score of advertisements every week in the New Orleans newspapers, advertising for slaves who'd fled their masters. But the Turk, Hseyin Pasha, posted no such advertisement when his two lovely concubines disappeared. And when a witness proclaimed he'd seen the 'devilish infidel' hurl their dead bodies out of a window, everyone was willing to believe him the murderer. Only Benjamin January, who knows the Turk of old, is willing to seek for the true culprit, endangering his own life in the process . . .
Publishers Weekly Starred Review
"The touching portrait of January's love for his two very different wives as well as the incredible period detail and rich atmosphere make this stand out among historical mysteries"
Booklist Starred Review
"More complicated than most January tales... More poignant, too"
