A mystery novel with abundant human and cultural elements and a subtle sense of humor. The reader a perfect fit to the book. I recommend without qualification.

I have listened to all of the audio books from the Mamur Zapt series by Michael Pearce(of which this is the most recent)and I must admit that Bill Wallis is the absolutely worst reader of all. The absolutely best reader of all these books is Simon Prebble. That said I think this is a great series and well worth listening to. I hope that audible will get all the books in this series.
The series has great stories which depict Pre WWI Egypt and are filled with witty and interesting characters. It is too bad that Wallis has trouble capturing the essence of these characters. He is especially weak with female voice.
The plots are always fascinating and have interesting twists which are firmly based in the author's real life experience in the region. I only gave this book a 3 star because of the reader. The plot and story are 5 star.
