Egypt, 1912. In Cairo, the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities investigate disturbances between the mortal and the (possibly) divine.

What starts off as an odd suicide case for Special Investigator Fatma el-Sha’arawi leads her through the city’s underbelly as she encounters rampaging ghouls, saucy assassins, clockwork angels, and a plot that could unravel time itself.

Review of 'A Dead Djinn in Cairo: A Tor.Com Original' on 'GoodReads'

3 stars

Quite a lot of story and world building packed into this novelette. And if you are into this sort of thing, there is a much longer sequel, "The Haunting of Tram Car 015" that fleshes out the setting even more. A bit predictable as far as mysteries go, but really atmospheric. Recommended.
