A Tudor TurkIstanbul, 1591 – and Sultan Murad III, the mightiest ruler in the world, has been robbed. The Staff of Moses has been stolen from his private collection of religious artefacts in the Topkapi Palace, right from under his imperial nose. The wooden Staff, held by Moses as he parted the Red Sea, is a magical symbol of power worth a king’s ransom – and the furious Sultan wants it back. A small undercover unit of hand-picked, trusted warriors is hastily assembled to track down the thieves.
