The Daily Beast and The New York Times

My new Palestinian crime novel THE FOURTH ASSASSIN is one of five “This Week’s Hot Reads” on The Daily Beast, which also happens to be the hot read of the web these days. The Beast writes of the book and its Brooklyn setting: “Rees paints a meticulous portrait of the post-9/11 community of Little Palestine and the tension of cultures trying to co-exist.”

Meanwhile, the New York Times Book Review highlights the paperback release of my previous novel THE SAMARITAN’S SECRET in its Paperback Row column, calling the book “provocative and humane.” Seems The Times’d rather print a nice photo of me than one of Jimmy Carter, too. Well, the old boy had his time in the sun.
