review 1: I was really excited to see that Anne Perry had written a novel set in Constantinople c. 1278-80. I enjoyed learning about the history of this city and getting a different perspective on the crusades. (Just like today, one issue is what horror is inflicted on innocent people in the name of religion!) I listened to this really long book (16 CDs) and was disappointed. It se wasn't nearly so much fun as her nineteenth century series.
review 2: The years:1273-89, Constantinople....a woman seeks to prove her twin brother's innocence, who has been exiled to the desert for conspiring to kill a nobleman...she must disquise herself to move freely thru society....Another Crusade to capture the Holy Land is brewing and leaders in Rome and Venice have set their sights
... moreon Constantinople for what is sure to be a brutal invasion.This has a strong story and a colorful with a wide cast of characters. less

A disaster. I quit halfway through, which I NEVER do. But, I just couldn't take it any more.
A long audio book, to and from work, but well worth the listen, now to find the book itself
I liked it a lot. I liked the theology and the adventure and the romance
