The Samaritan's Secret, the third of my Palestinian crime novels, was named one of the Best Mystery Books of the Year for 2009 by Deadly Pleasures, the crime fiction magazine with the best read on websites and what fans like. The cover you see here is from the US paperback edition of The Samaritan's Secret which'll be out in the New Year. The Deadly Pleasures list includes some of my personal favorites too--it's great to be in the company of James Ellroy, whose "Blood's a Rover" was a fitting culmination to his Underworld USA trilogy. Thanks to Deadly Pleasures. Read the rest of the list here and let me know what you think of it. Did they miss anything good?

Thanks, guys. The book means a lot to me, as I became a father during its writing and ended up having the relationships between fathers and sons be an important theme. So it's wonderful to have such recognition.
