‘Smart People Recommend’…Me

On The Daily Beast‘s Buzz Board, under the headline “Smart People Recommend”, Charles M. Sennott, head honcho of the innovative international news site Global Post, plugs THE SAMARITAN’S SECRET: “Matt Beynon Rees’s Palestinian detective novels reveal more truths about the ‘Holy Land,’ and I use that term loosely, than any straight journalism I’ve ever read [Sennott writes]. He is a masterful storyteller with the eye for detail of a great reporter, which he is as well. They are a collection of stories featuring the fictional detective, Omar Yussef, whose life is full of the complexities and contradictions and humanity that are the ground truth of life in Israel/Palestine. Check out The Samaritan’s Secret.”
