Cairo, 1912: The case started as a simple one for the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities — handling a possessed tram car.

Soon, however, Agent Hamed Nasr and his new partner Agent Onsi Youssef are exposed to a new side of Cairo stirring with suffragettes, secret societies, and sentient automatons in a race against time to protect the city from an encroaching danger that crosses the line between the magical and the mundane.

Review of 'Haunting of Tram Car 015' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

Just long enough to whet your appetite, in an alternate history Cairo that is a collision of modernity and history. (In this context, "modernity" means "modern, Djinn-powered technology".) Agent Hamed is middle-aged, and gives off a faint air "I'm too old for all these new-fangled things" that isn't so regressive that it made me annoyed with him. He's like 'I guess it's time for women to get the vote?' but also happy to get help from various women in exorcising the haunted tram car.
