  • The best what-if thriller for a long, long time

  • A tour de force in both storytelling and breadth of concept. It is story not just of an alternate history but a cautionary tale that directly impacts and reflects upon the struggles of our time and place. It is thrilling, disturbing, inspiring, and left me all too often in awe. This book will make you look at history-and your role in it-in an all new light. Be prepared to be forever impacted, forever changed.

  • A dystopian thriller that wears its smartness on its sleeve . . . will appeal to fans of The Handmaid's Tale . . . I suspect that this summer, you'll never be far from someone who has been claimed by The Ottoman Secret

  • Alternate histories don't get much better than this thought-provoking mind bender... Superior and plausible worldbuilding matches an ingeniously imaginative conceit. This ranks as a classic of the genre.

    Publishers Weekly
  • The Ottoman Secret is a masterpiece. A compelling saga, on a grand scale, with food for thought on every fascinating page. It's a breath of fresh air, an alternate history firing on all cylinders that will stay with you long after finishing. A stellar epic.

  • A world-class writer of pure-bred thrillers

    Daily Telegraph
  • Raymond Khoury has created an alternative history tale that will blow your mind. A story strung along the centuries that is thoroughly engrossing and one you will long remember.

  • The real excitement in Khoury's complex multi-plot comes not from the thrills on the surface, but from the ideas underneath

    The Wall Street Journal
  • Alternative history yarns are still very much in vogue and Raymond Khoury has come up with a fine addition to the genre.
