|Author 1||Matt Rees|
|Editorial Review||"If Simenon gives you canal-side France and Henning Mankell a desolating Sweden, then Rees wants you to experience the West Bank in all its complexity and despair. The story of Omar Yussef, an elderly teacher fighting to maintain his own idea of integrity while solving a brutal murder, restores detective fiction to its most powerful origins: the one moral hero in the chaos of the world." "Rees takes a complex world of culture clash and suspicion and places upon it humanity." (David Baldacci ) "Yussef is a splendid creation." (Colin Dexter ) "Provocative.. a culture that thinks of terrorist bombers as martyrs, Rees's modest protagonist, an aging Palestinian schoolteacher named Omar Yussef, is not one's idea of a hero. But in two previous books...this decent man proved his courage by daring to keep an open mind in a closed society." (New York Times Book Review ) "Absorbing...Rees vividly illustrates daily Palestinian life, where violence is a constant threat and religious attitudes permeate each decision."
