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.
This is the third book in this series and is just as amazing as the first two!! Just like the first two books, there are three storylines--two modern-day and one from the sixteenth century. The two modern-day storylines come together as Omar and Mia team up with the son of his nemesis, Naim, and his friend Leyla. The historical storyline deals with a sultan and his chief wife, Roxelane.
While I love Omar and learning more about him, I always find myself fascinated with the historical storyline. I love the way Ms. Moore tells these stories. They come to life and I feel like I'm transported back to that time period. The story switches back and forth and she does a great job at ending each chapter just as it's getting good. But it works because I'm interested in the next chapter, too. And it continues that way until the very end.
Even though this is book three, you can start with this one since they each stand on their own. Omar and Mia are the two characters that are consistent throughout the series. Their relationship has changed somewhat since the first book, so if you want their complete history, you'll want to read these in order. If you enjoy historical fiction with suspense and romance, this is a series you will want to read! I'm hoping there will be more Omar stories in the future!
