The Mamur Zapt and the Camel of Destruction By Michael Pearce

The Mamur Zapt and the Camel of Destruction
by Michael Pearce

The Mamur Zapt and the Camel of Destruction Summary


The Mamur Zapt and the Camel of Destruction by Michael Pearce

Cairo, 1910. The end of the boom and everyone seems to have money troubles. Then one day a civil servant dies at his desk. Was it pressure of work or something nastier? The whiff of corruption is in the air, with even Gareth Owen, the Mamur Zapt, under suspicion...

Owen's investigation takes him to the heart of a sinister organization. But will he be up to taking them on? And will he be in time to stop the Camel of Destruction running through the city?
