Awesome book. I wish Ms Perry would write a series based on this novel.
Excellent read once I started it, it was hard to put down.
Returned it after the first 100 pages (out of 400).
The historical intrest was drownded on the soap opera plotting.
A page turner from beginning to end. So much intrigue and complexity to the characters.
This is by far Anne Perry's best work. She should stick to historical fiction, where she is best at developing her characters and immersing the reader into an era. Developing a mystery and bringing it to fruition/completion, she often falls flat. Hoping for more true historical fiction from Ms. Perry!!!
This was a great story. I really enjoyed the main characters. Anna becomes involved with a number of powerful people and interesting events. I loved learning about the Constantinople of this time.
Thinking it would be a murder mystery, I was a bit disappointed as it was only really a secondary plot. The descriptions of Byzantium are rich and makes the city come to light.
