Master of Djinn

by P. Djèlí Clark

Murder mystery set in a steampunk 1912 Cairo crowded with djinn. Fatma el-Sha’arawi, a dapper junior agent of the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments & Supernatural Entities, is on the case.

The main character is fantastic, and the setting—Egypt is now a world superpower thanks to the strength of its supernatural allies—is great.

Super good. This set me off on a mission to read everything published by P. Djèlí Clark while he finishes the next book in this series.
