Part of Pearce's humorous mystery series set in Eqypt in 1908. The Mamur Zapt is a British officer, appointed with almost no preparation, as the Caliph's Chief of Police. He unravels mysteries, Anglo-Egyptian politics, and Cairo's mixed social scene. An academic who grew up in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, his stories can be trusted for a feel of the time and place, as well as mystery and rollicking humor.
