The Mamur Zapt, British head of Cairo’s secret police, is told to catch the killer – and quickly. His efforts to do so take him into Cairo’s student quarter and out to a remote rural estate. And require him to handle a fading Pasha and a dangerous gypsy girl – whose claims he has to balance against those of his fiery Egyptian mistress.
