Another portrait – and a quiz

One of the joys of writing historical novels, crime or otherwise, is discovering real-life characters and making them part of the story.

I’ve recently become devoted to this young lady. Note the sword, and the fly-away hair – and just begin to guess her life history!


To tell the truth, it all ends rather sadly, especially for Ambassador Palewski, Yashim’s old friend. That’s a clue by the way.

Any ideas? Email me secretly at [email protected] and a copy of An Evil Eye to the first right answer: who is she?
