The bestselling murder mystery from Orhan Pamuk, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Winner of the Nobel Prize for LiteratureWinner of the International IMPAC Dublin Award'Wonderful' The Spectator'Magnificent' Observer'Unforgettable' GuardianMy Name is Red is an unforgettable murder mystery, set amid the splendour of sixteenth century Istanbul, from the Nobel prizewinning authorIn 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.

At a time of violent fundamentalism, however, this is a dangerous proposition.

Even the illustrious circle of artists are not allowed to know for whom they are working.

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?With the Sultan demanding an answer within three days, perhaps the clue lies somewhere in the half-finished pictures . . . Orhan Pamuk is one of the world's leading contemporary novelists and in My Name is Red, he fashioned an unforgettable tale of suspense, and an artful meditation on love and deception.
