SUPERANNO The new Benjamin January novel from the best-selling author RAN AWAY--So began a score of advertisements every week in the New Orleans newspapers, advertising for slaves who'd fled their masters. But the Turk, Hüseyin Pasha, posted no such advertisement when his two lovely concubines disappeared.

Only Benjamin January, who knows the Turk of old, is willing to seek for the true culprit, endangering his own life in the process. (mystery & detective).
