Publisher's Summary

For decades, Omar Yussef has been a teacher of history to the children of Bethlehem. When a favourite former pupil, George Saba, is arrested for collaborating with the Israelis in the killing of a Palestinian guerrilla, Yussef is convinced that he has been framed.

With George facing imminent execution, Yussef sets out to prove his innocence. As Yussef falls foul of his headmaster and the local police chief, time begins to run out for Saba.

But with no one else willing to stand up for the truth, it is up to Yussef act, even as bloodshed and heartbreak surround him...

    "A sorry tale of prejudices"

    A very strong story about the tragic facts of life for the different communities living in modern Bethlehem where quarrels and rivalries abound. Sadly, it seems, even the various religious sects at the Manger Church cannot agree and are suspicious of each other.

    There is a trail of bodies, senseless killings. History teacher Abu Rames feels forced out of the classroom to try and prove that his old pupil is not an Israeli collaborator.

    Matt Rees brings to life the hardships, difficulties and uncertainties of life in Israel, especially for the Palestinians on the West Bank. An exciting story with an excellent narrator introducing a very human and humane amateur detective.
