The best what-if thriller for a long, long time (LEE CHILD)
A tour de force in both storytelling and breadth of concept. It is story not just of an alternate history but a cautionary tale that directly impacts and reflects upon the struggles of our time and place. It is thrilling, disturbing, inspiring, and left me all too often in awe. This book will make you look at history-and your role in it-in an all new light. Be prepared to be forever impacted, forever changed. (JAMES ROLLINS)
A dystopian thriller that wears its smartness on its sleeve . . . will appeal to fans of The Handmaid's Tale . . . I suspect that this summer, you'll never be far from someone who has been claimed by The Ottoman Secret (Independent)
Alternate histories don't get much better than this thought-provoking mind bender... Superior and plausible worldbuilding matches an ingeniously imaginative conceit. This ranks as a classic of the genre. (Publishers Weekly)
The Ottoman Secret is a masterpiece. A compelling saga, on a grand scale, with food for thought on every fascinating page. It's a breath of fresh air, an alternate history firing on all cylinders that will stay with you long after finishing. A stellar epic. (STEVE BERRY)

Raymond Khoury has created an alternative history tale that will blow your mind. A story strung along the centuries that is thoroughly engrossing and one you will long remember. (DAVID BALDACCI)
Alternate history...tons of adventure...this is real fun. Not just an intelligent, immersive thriller, but also a timely visit to a reality that easily could've been. So well researched and written it feels chillingly real. As thought-provoking as it is entertaining. (BRAD MELTZER, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE ESCAPE ARTIST)
Alternative history yarns are still very much in vogue and Raymond Khoury has come up with a fine addition to the genre. (Weekend Sport)

PARIS, 2017.
300 YEARS AFTER ALL OF EUROPE FELL 
TO THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE . . .
Kamal Agha is a special investigator for the state police, upholding the feared sultan's strict regime. When a mysteriously tattooed, naked man appears by the Seine and murders a passerby, Kamal is tasked with finding him.
But the man holds an astonishing secret-a secret which could put the empire's entire future, and history, in doubt.
A secret the sultan's men will do anything to suppress.
Forced on the run, Kamal knows he will be killed for what he knows-unless he dares use it to save himself. But doing so could wipe out his whole world, and everyone he ever loved along with it . . .
