Product Details


Praise for The Damascus Threat:
“Fast-paced, action-packed first in a new thriller series from Rees—best known for The Fourth Assassin and three other crime novels featuring Palestinian sleuth Omar Yussef.”
Publishers Weekly

“This series kickoff…keeps the action and the close calls coming and tucks colorful characters into unexpected corners. Crackerjack entertainment.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Rees sets the bar high for future novels…If you enjoy fast-paced thrillers about international terrorism, then this is definitely the book for you.”
San Francisco Book Review, five stars

The Damascus Threat starts with a bang and gathers speed right out of the box. Matt Rees introduces us to the human but extremely capable Dominic Verrazzano, a special agent from ICE, one of the unsung agencies working in the shadows to keep the United States safe from terrorism. Smartly crafted with a host of authentic characters, this is an outstanding read.”
—Marc Cameron, New York Times bestselling author of Brute Force

The Damascus Threat reads like it’s ripped from tomorrow’s headlines, and takes us into the unexplored world of U.S. ICE Agents. Fascinating, suspenseful, and a heck of a good story set inside one of the nation’s most secretive law enforcement agencies.”
—Mark Sullivan, co-author of James Patterson’s Private Paris

Praise for the Omar Yussef Mystery Series:
“Brilliantly conceived and beautifully written, The Fourth Assassin is strongly recommended.”
Bookreporter on The Fourth Assassin

“Intelligent and suspenseful.”
The Daily Beast on The Fourth Assassin

“One of the most beguiling of current sleuths”
The Sunday Times (UK) on The Fourth Assassin

“Provocative and humane…Rees adopts a humanist perspective, keeping the military maneuvers in the background and focusing on ordinary people struggling to live ordinary lives.”
The New York Times Book Review on The Samaritan’s Secret

“Rees not only offers a perceptive look at complex international political issues but also help us to understand those issues in the context of everyday lives”
Booklist starred review on The Samaritan’s Secret

The Economist on A Grave in Gaza

“An astonishing first novel.”
The New York Times Book Review on The Collaborator of Bethlehem
