Summary
Elegant Effendi, an artist hired to create a book illuminating the Sultan's triumphant life, has been killed. The man who hired him, Enishte, has also been murdered. While on a recent trip to Italy, Enishte was entranced by painting that used perspective and figurative art abundantly. He encouraged his artists to use the same methods in their construction of the Sultan's book. However, this sort of art serves as an affront to Islam and may have led to the death of Effendi and Enishte

Summary
In sixteenth-century Istanbul, a furor erupts when the Sultan hires a group of artists to illuminate a great book in the European style at a time in which all figurative art is considered Islamic heresy, but the situation becomes worse when one of the miniaturists vanishes
