Title: Slave Queen
Author: H.B. Moore
Stars: 4.5 out of 5
This is a story which I found to be remarkable in its complexity. The author has taken a bit from history and woven a story which weaves between then and now and it has been done so neatly that it feels like silk to your senses. The plot, characters, and storyline all move toward the grand finale and does not leave the reader wondering what occurred.
I have given this book 4.5 stars and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a book with a different twist on history.
I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
(As an aside I just happened to be in Istanbul and had the opportunity to again visit and tour one of the sites in the story. Frank)
Special Agent Omar Zagouri’s latest case is his most dangerous—and his most personal yet. The discovery of secret sixteenth-century letters unveils a plot between the sultan Suleyman and his chief wife, Roxelane, to change the course of the Ottoman Empire. A descendent of Roxelane, Zagouri learns he has an enemy whose revenge has been centuries in the making.
Targeted by an antiquities collector who’s also descended from a chief rival for the ancient throne, Zagouri soon uncovers a modern-day conspiracy that threatens the lives of his family and the security of a nation.
To expose the plot, Zagouri must team up with Naim, the son of his nemesis, who heads an international black-market operation that may have ties to the killings. From ancient Constantinople to the present-day Middle East, Zagouri is on a collision course with history. Time is running out to solve a royal mystery and stop a ruthless killer—one who has Zagouri’s name on his hit list.
