- What’s On
Twelve-year-old Charles Henby’s father has been murdered and now the murderers are after him because he is carrying a letter asking for help from the “real” king of England to the Ottoman sultan. The year is 1716 and the Ottomans are about to fight the Austrians for control of the Balkans. Young Henby is caught up in the battle and swept along to the Ottoman court in Edirne. Will the murderers find him before he can deliver the letter? Will he survive amid the jealousies and intrigues at court long enough to present his letter to the sultan?
