Frustratingly displayed out of sequence due to the idiosyncrasies of the SFrevu database, here's Effendi, the second title in Jon Courtenay Grimwood's Arabesk trilogy, now reissued by Gollancz in mass market paperback (the other two titles in the series are listed below). This sequence has been much lauded, a futuristic detective story set in a Middle east where the Ottoman Empire still dominates.
"All brilliant light and scorching heat... Grimwood successfully mingles fantasy with reality to make an unusual, beleivable and absorbing mystery" -- Sunday Telegraph
