Series: Daniel Faust Book 5
When this story starts things are bad for our hero. He’s on his way to jail but something isn’t right. Not just the fact that he didn’t commit the crime he’s going to jail for but the memory of it for everyone around him. Someone is messing with the universe and making Faust the main victim.

The Haunting of Tram Car 015 by P. Djeli Clark is a fantasy novella set in a 1912 Cairo that is ripe with magic, djinn, and a haunted tram car. Set in the same universe as Clark’s short story A Dead Djinn in Cairo, it is a real treat that you don’t want to miss. I haven’t had so much fun reading a book since Catherynne Valente’s Space Opera.
