Read in June, 2009

Since I don't know of any crime fiction that takes place in Tehran, I went as geographically close as I could.

This is the third book in Rees's series of Palestinian mysteries. It's great for atmosphere and culture, but weak on characterization and plot. Omar Yussef's blunt interrogations of people who have tried to have him killed seem out of character, as does a clumsy scene where he endangers the life of his favorite granddaughter.

The other two are worth reading, but I'd skip this one.
