Welcome to Palestine

Crime novelist Matt Beynon Rees, whose work has been compared to Graham Greene and John Le Carre, welcomes you to Palestine with an atmospheric, dramatic tour of the scene of his mystery novels about Palestinian detective Omar Yussef. His books take readers from Bethlehem, to Gaza, to Nablus and the rest of the West Bank and Arab world. Here Rees gives you a flavor of that dangerous region in the style of the classic detective noir of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett that inspired him.
