Description

A classic murder mystery from the award-winning Michael Pearce, which sees the Mamur Zapt investigate a series of suspicious kidnappings in the Cairo of the 1900s. Cairo in the 1900s. `Tourists are quite safe provided they don't do anything stupidly reckless,' Owen, the Mamur Zapt, British head of Cairo's secret police, assures the press. But what of Monsieur Moulin and Mr Colthorpe, kidnapped from the terrace at Shepheard's Hotel? Were these kidnappings intended as deliberately symbolic blows at the British? Owen had better unravel it quickly, or else... And where better to start from than the donkey-vous, Cairo's enterprising youths who hire out their donkeys for rides...
