West England paper: Rees writes "genre-busting crime series"

The Western Morning News, a regional newspaper serving Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, gives THE SAMARITAN’S SECRET a great review. Here it is:

If you haven’t yet entered the colourful, chaotic, tragi-comic world of amateur Palestinian detective Omar Yussef, then take a satisfying plunge with the third in this genre-busting crime series.

With a race-against-time plot involving missing millions, a dying religious sect, fanatical political leaders and a corrupt police force, the real story turns out to be forbidden love and the difficult relationship between fathers and sons.

Yussef, overweight history teacher and doting grandfather, seems to bungle his way through the mystery, but like a latter day Miss Marple, he knows more than he lets on — and his innocence carries him through.
