Matt Beynon Rees – The Samaritan’s Secret

Author and former Newsweek correspondent Matt Beynon Rees talks about his newest book, The Samaritans’s Secret, the third book in his series of detective stories set in the West Bank and Gaza. The travails of his character, aging teacher Omar Yussef, create a deeply revealing window into the nature of contemporary Palestinian society — the corruption, honor, savagery and joy. The books have sold to publishers in 23 countries and have earned Rees the title “the Dashiell Hammett of Palestine.”
