Description: In Istanbul, in the late 1590s, the Sultan secretly commissions a great book: a celebration of his royal self and his extensive dominion, to be illuminated by the most acclaimed artists of the day -- in the European manner. But in a time of violent, resurgent fundamentalism any work of representational art -- an affront to Islam -- is a dangerous proposition indeed. And so for their own safety, no one in the elite circle of artists, under the deft management of the old Master Uncle, can know whom they are working for or with.

When one of the miniaturists is missing and feared murdered, Master Uncle engages another artist, Black, a cherished nephew who since childhood has been in love with the Master's daughter, to help unravel the mystery. Was the victim, a virtuoso, killed out of professional jealousy, or to narrow the populous field of those aspiring to the hand of Uncle's daughter, the ravishing Shekure? Or did the fundamentalists discover the secret blasphemous work at the royal court? The Sultan demands an answer within three days, but the only clue is the half-finished illuminations themselves. In one, the nostrils of a horses are drawn strangely: is this an innocent stylistic marker, or an error that will betray the killer?

My Name is Red is a thrilling murder mystery played amidst the perils of religious repression. It is also a captivating love story, and a meditation on artistic devotion in the face of the demands of worldly existence.
