A Grave in Gaza

An Omar Yussef Mystery by Matt Beynon Rees

A Grave in Gaza by Matt Beynon Rees

Synopsis (from the publisher): Omar Yussef, teacher-turned-detective, is sent to the troubled Gaza Strip to carry out a routine school inspection. There, he learns that a fellow teacher has been arrested, and, instinctively recognizing the signs of grave injustice, he sets out to investigate. The person responsible for the arrest is Colonel al-Fara, the most power - and dangerous - man in Gaza, and Omar's friends urge him not to intervene.

But Omar confronts the colonel, and finds himself caught in a ruthless power struggle involving weapons smuggling and assassination. When Omar's colleague is kidnapped and another is murdered, he begins to understand why people tell him that, in lawless Gaza, all crimes are connected. Omar is faced with the terrible realization that only he can save his colleague - and himself.
