    A mysterious, holy grail-like object, a document with the potential to "bring about peace between the different peoples of the world," is at the center of The Abyssinian Proof book erudite second novel set in late 19th-century Istanbul and featuring city magistrate Kamil Pasha after The Sultan's Seal. Around the final years of the 19th century in a thriving Istanbul, we meet police investigator Kamil Pasha who is asked to recover the lost 'Proof of God' by an old friend. Yes, Kamil finds the murderer in the end but I do not want to spoil the story. The stories of the people who ended up in Turkey are mostly forgotten, even in Turkey. Some of the narrative felt a bit chaotic though. First, the story of Malik, his sister Balkis and the Habesh, the descendants of the Abyssinian slaves.

    Author tour. When the reliquary is reported as stolen, Kamil must deal with the sect priestess, Balki, who is desperately unwell and her daughter Saba, to whom Kamil feels an instant attraction. To find her, Hiroshi goes deeper and deeper into Tokyo's intricate, ominous market for buying and selling the most expensive land in the world. Kamil is in a delicate position, charged with fairly adjudicating local affairs but realizing as well that people are often given to corruption.

    It The Abyssinian Proof book not have an English translation. I must confess that the reveal of the nature of the Proof of God was not a let-down and one of the more well thought out religious historical plot devices. I should look for some books written in English, or translations, chronicling the stories of these people. White, a professor of anthropology, clearly knows her period and place, though some readers may wish that she had toned down the esoteric knowledge and upped the thriller quotient. When Takamatsu inexplicably disappears, Hiroshi teams up with ex-sumo wrestler Sakaguchi. Was this a novel about a lost relic?

Was it about women's rights in an era known for suppression? The Christian boy- who everyone thinks is Muslim- falls for a Muslim girl. One of the earliest Christian peoples, the highland Ethiopians maintained a special Monophysite branch of Christianity, incorporating numerous local saints and practices, sometimes approaching Judaism in its adherence to Old Testament ideals.

The Abyssinians

Investigating, Special Prosecutor Kamil Pasha encounters a ruthless adversary, Vahid, the head of a special branch of the secret police. A humorous look at the adventures of a scholar turned novelist.

With a four-city tour. He's lost his girlfriend and still dreams of his time studying in America, but with a stable job, his own office and a half-empty apartment, he's settled in.

About cultural changes in the east at the end of the 19th century? The stories are independent but there is a romance between Kamil Pasha The Abyssinian Proof book Elif which progresses The Abyssinian Proof book the three novels.

It is the description of the people and places that makes this book rather good. I must confess that the reveal of the nature of the Proof of God was not a let-down and one of the more well thought out religious historical plot devices.

Still reeling from her losses, Elia is drawn to Kamil but is not prepared to consider a relationship, wanting only to heal from her trauma and return to the solace of her painting. The story weaves through events around the sect and into Kamil's investigation from there on.

A fair amount of the main characters, even though they were vividly drawn, felt similar in many ways. Over the last 40 years, Ethiopia has been in the news for famine, for war, and for a harsh regime, but it is the home of ancient culture, fascinating art and music, good food, and much more.

The narrative flows well and as a reader you're easily swept away from your reading chair into the atmosphere of a crumbling empire. Jenny White enters this time of distrust and turmoil, re-creating the gritty underworld of a dying empire. When the person who originally told Kamil of the theft is brutally murdered, Kamil's investigation becomes all the more urgent.

You certainly won't be lost if you haven't read the first book, but Kamil is somebody that you might want to get to know a little more. Performance and reliability cookies These cookies allow us to monitor OverDrive's performance and reliability.Get this from a library!
