In much the same way, Matt Rees has decided that the best vehicle for his years of reporting from Israel and the Palestinian territories is a murder mystery novel. Rees's focus is Bethlehem, a town that most Christians learn about at an early age and then continue to hear about annually for the rest of their lives. But in Bethlehem , the baby in the manger and the shepherds on the hillside have been replaced by gangster gunmen and overcrowded refugee camps. It is in the mud-covered alleyways of the camps and the surrounding town that Rees sets his book. Omar Yussef is a teacher sickened by the culture of death and the glorification of gunmen he sees around him.
He is forced to leave the classroom in order to save the life of an old pupil, a Christian, who has been accused of collaborating with Israel, a crime punishable by death. Yussef is a Muslim who was once an alcoholic and is not strict about fasting during Ramadan. He could quite easily join Rebus or Morse at a bar and swap tales of belligerent superiors and a society that is becoming more difficult to understand.
