I certainly learned more about the Ottoman Empire than I knew before but mysteries are always a "mystery" for me when all is said and done. I found this book a bit confusing but that is why I seldom read murder mysteries - I'm just not good at keeping all the characters straight, this book included. Others may find it less confusing.

I love travel via a books to places I will never have the pleasure of knowing and into times I will not ever live- This book does both- the characters are real and likeable.

"Intricate and subtle as a Turkish carpet, lush as silk upon the skin, The Sultan's Seal is a fascinating and remarkably knowledgeable look at a society in flux, with its very appealing characters caught between East and West, Islam and Christianity, and bound in a web of murder and treachery that only the lucky few may escape."-Diana Gabaldon
