Summary, etc.:
Istanbul, 1840: the new sultan, Abdulmecid, has heard a rumor that Bellini's vanished masterpiece---a portrait of Mehmed the Conqueror---may have resurfaced in Venice. Yashim, our eunuch detective, is promptly sent to investigate, but---aware that the sultan's advisers are against any extravagant repurchase of the painting---decides to deploy his disempowered Polish ambassador friend, Palewski, to visit Venice in his stead.
