The Face in the Cemetery by Michael Pearce

Regular price $13.50 Sale

The latest novel in Michael Pearce's award-winning series, set in the Egypt of the 1900s. 'Irresistible fun' Time Out Egypt, 1914. It is the beginning of the war and Gareth Owen, Mamur Zapt and Head of Cairo's Secret Police, is unhappily rounding up enemy aliens. But nationality is a slippery thing in cosmopolitan Egypt. Who counts as German? And whose is the face in the cemetery? Owen would prefer to have to answer neither of these questions. He is preoccupied with missing guns (missing? in war time?) and dubious ghaffirs. Villages usually pick Dogberry-type simpletons as their watchmen. But what are these toughs doing here? And this heavily-armed, thumb-sucking girl? The face in the cemetery, though, refuses to go away, and Owen comes to realize that it poses questions that are not just professional but uncomfortably personal. This 2002 HarperCollins Publishers Ltd Paperback is in Good condition.
