The Lion of Janina

by Mór Jókai

The 'Lion of Janina' is a picturesque old ruffian, Ali Pasha, who, at the age of seventy, is the strongest, craftiest, and most able and courageous man in Turkey. The time and the subject of the story is a veritable romance of the East, full of marvels and mysteries, wonderful palaces, beautiful maidens, and more ghastly horrors in the shape of murders and mutilations than are gathered together in any one book outside the famous 'Book of Martyrs.'
