Matt Beynon Rees' series of mystery novels featuring U.N. School teacher Omar Yussef is both a joy and a sorrow. The Palestinians, the people at the heart of the series are a troubled people and Rees tries to be fair about the source of the troubles. The mysteries are layered, culturally complicated and deeply, sadly human. In this novel, Yussef travels to New York for UN conference and finds himself emmeshed in the politics of little Palestine...a fascinating portrait of a people and a place we pay too little attention to.
