The blurb in the catalog record identifies the protagonist of this series as "Yashim Lastname". That should be corrected to Yashim Togalu.
That said, this is an excellent story. I hope the series holds up to this standard.

Not only was this a great mystery book, but I enjoyed details about 19th century Istanbul as well as the recipes the main character shared with readers when he was cooking. He enjoys cooking and since I do as well, this was a plus for me. I was also fascinated by his friends, from the Sultun's French born mother to his best friend, a down at heels ambassador.
