THE ABYSSINIAN PROOF—Jenny White—A fast-reading, fun detective story with hero Kamil Pasha making his second appearance, but the first in the Shenandoah Library. Set in Turkey detective (called inspector there) solves a puzzle of antiquities being stolen and shipped abroad, especially a stolen reliquary overseen by friends which would contain the proof of God. As the story unfolds to a delicious climax, the author paints scenes of life in modern-day Turkey, gently explaining similarities and differences. Ms. White’s ‘day job’ is as “professor of anthropology at Boston University and the author of numerous nonfiction works on Turkish society and polities”. Her storehouse of information makes her tale incredibly readable.
