A Palestinian sleuth in Gaza

2008-09-03 00:00

This is the second in what should be a long series of novels featuring as detective Omar Yussef, a Palestinian history teacher of exceptional talents. This time, on an extra-hot morning in Gaza, he’s on his way to carry out a school inspection when he learns that a Scottish fellow teacher has been accused of links to the CIA, and jailed. The more he investigates the arrest, the more people seem to be implicated, and the nastier things become, made infinitely worse by the brutal discomfort of a sandstorm lasting day after choking, breathless day.
