A Grave in Gaza: An Omar Yussef Mystery by Matt Beynon Rees
In this page-turning mystery novel, Omar Yussef and his boss, Magnus Wallender, travel to the Gaza Strip for a routine inspection of the UN schools in the Gaza refugee camps. Upon their arrival they meet James Cree, the UN security officer for Gaza, who informs them that a teacher at one of their schools has been accused of spying and imprisoned. As they try to free the teacher and keep a lid on an explosive political situation, they are pulled into a confrontation with Gaza’s warring government factions and the criminal gangs with which they are connected. Omar Yussef confronts the dark elements of Gaza—dirty politics, bribery, assassination, and kidnapping—in his struggle to free the innocent and honor the dead.
