"A lovingly detailed portrait of Egypt during the Great War. The
result is a bit like a police procedural reimagined by Douglas
Adams" Kirkus Reviews on The Bride Box Atbara, Sudan, 1913. A dead
man is fished out of the River Nile. An accident - or something
more sinister? A visiting Pasha from the Royal Household believes
it was murder - and that he himself was the intended target. He
insists that the Mamur Zapt, Head of the Khedive's Secret Police,
escorts him on his return train journey to Cairo, for protection.
It's to be an eventful voyage. Matters take an unexpected turn when
the train is stranded in the desert following a sandstorm. With the
help of English schoolboy Jamie Nicholson, the Mamur Zapt pursues
his investigations, convinced that at least one of his fellow
passengers has a secret to hide. And what was the Pasha really
doing in that remote corner of the Sudan? Could the Mamur Zapt's
deepest fears be true? Could he really be about to uncover a
conspiracy against the British?
