In Istanbul, in the late 1590s, the Sultan secretly commissions a great book: a celebration of his life and his empire, to be illuminated by the best artists of the day - in the European manner.
But when one of the miniaturists is murdered, their master has to seek outside help. Did the dead painter fall victim to professional rivalry, romantic jealousy, or religious terror?
A thrilling romantic mystery, My Name is Red is also a stunning meditation on love, artistic devotion, and the tensions between East and West.
