CR- The Golden Scales - Parker Bill

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Having the world 2nd book in the series to review,  I thought the first would be a better place to start.

From the blurb:

The ancient city of Cairo is a feverish tangle of the old and the new, of the superrich and the desperately poor, with inequality and corruption everywhere. It's a place where grudges and long-buried secrets can fester, and where people can disappear in the blink of an eye.
