I am loving this alternate history world!

his first full-length novel set in the “Dead Djinn Universe” features Fatma el-Sha’arawi, the youngest woman working for the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities. Fatma is called in to investigate the murder of 24 individuals who died in a distinctly magical manner and had been gathering as a secret brotherhood. The case will bring her old friends, a new partner, and a fabulous and terrifying array of Djinn. This is a well-constructed mystery, with great characters, all in a fascinating world that I want to see more of. Don’t miss Clark's novella The Haunting of Tram Car 015 or the Tor.com short story “A Dead Djinn in Cairo.”
