The Mamur Zapt, Head of Cairo’s Secret Police under British rule, did not concern himself with routine police matters. His are the intrigues, the shadowy and sinister events aimed at creating political instability. It is not a welcome time for a command that Captain Owen, the Mamur Zapt, show the niece of an inspecting English MP the sights. Worse, the sights include a dancing dervish stabbed before the lady’s very eyes. Is this all part of a pattern that could lead to blood on the streets and set Cairo’s ethnic communities at each other’s throats?
