Steeped in macabre mystery, The Serpent’s Tale wraps a political allegory in the dark cloth of a gothic, forbidding quest. Lamia Koprulu is the last in a line of aristocratic Ottomans. Her final hope for an heir, an illegitimate son, Haldun, has died in a boating accident. When an American stranger arrives with news that her son is alive, Lamia inspires a search that leads to a scroll containing dark secrets.
