Publisher's Summary

P. Djeli Clark returns to the historical fantasy universe of A Dead Djinn in Cairo, with the otherworldly adventure novella The Haunting of Tram Car 015

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.

Great story, bad vocals

I enjoy this writer, but the reader in this book was monotonous. I eventually had to stop, and I'll read it instead.

Steampunk Cairo

Well written and well read story. I hope that the author writes more in this world. And that Audible records them.

I really enjoyed Dead Djinn in Cairo, but -

This narrator has a lisp that occasionally turned "she" into "he" and one memorable "soon" into "thoon." It was rather distracting.

Did Not Finish - flat narration, complex story

I bought 3 of this author's books at once, and started with this one as it appears to be the earliest. The narration was obviously going to hinder my enjoyment but I tried to power through. With just a little over an hour left to finish the book I am giving up. Also, the story started out slow. I love descriptions, but in this case the balance of way too much description and way too little happening in the beginning was also a drag. The story picked up speed toward the middle. Sentences that started out with "He" for a character that then included "she" or "her" for the same character in the same sentence kept pulling me out of the story. But, then since there was a character also in the story that randomly and quickly changed genders, I wondered if these sentences were deliberate - even though they were not about the gender-changing character. But, every time it happened I missed part of the story since I was wondering if this was a narration mistake or part of the writing. Too confusing, and not worth the effort to tolerate and finish. I read the reviews for the next book and think I will just move on to the next, A Dead Djinn in Cairo. Looks good.
