Fiction. Literature. Mystery. HTML:

Haunted by the past and his own limitations, Israeli Detective Avraham Avraham must stop a criminal ruthless enough to target children in this evocative and gripping tale of mystery and psychological suspense that is the follow-up to The Missing File, the acclaimed first novel in D. A. Mishani's literary crime series that was shortlisted for the CWA International Dagger Award.

An explosive device is found in a suitcase near a daycare center in a quiet suburb of Tel Aviv. A few hours later, a threat is received: the suitcase was only the beginning.

Inspector Avraham Avraham, back in Israel after a much-needed vacation, is assigned to the investigation. Tormented by the trauma and failure of his past case, Avraham is determined not to make the same mistakes??especially with innocent lives at stake. He may have a break when one of the suspects, a father of two, appears to have gone on the run. Is he the terrorist behind the threat? Is he trying to escape Avraham's intense investigation? Or perhaps he's fleeing a far more terrible crime that no one knows has been committed?

No matter how much Avraham wants to atone for the past, redemption may not be possible??not when he's entangled in a case more deceptive and abominable than any he's ever faced… (mer)

This second entry in the Israeli crime series continues where the first left off (see >199 arubabookwoman:). In this one, Avi is having self-doubts about the mistakes he made or may have made during the investigation into the missing teen that was the subject of the first book. His self-doubt may affect how he is handling the new investigation.

In the present case, what appears to be a bomb has been left outside of a daycare center. It does not explode, but the police fear that it may have been a warning--to whom and about what is unknown. Avi begins to suspect that one of the fathers whose son goes to the daycare may be involved in some way, but his superiors think he's on the wrong track.

I like this Israeli series. There are excellent characterizations. It's not a "chase" book or a "shoot-'em-up". It's a more cerebral crime-solving book. And the Israeli setting and culture are interesting. I also like that the detective is not always right, and that he has doubts and is regularly second guessing himself. Amazon describes the series as "more-thoughtful than action-packed," which I quite liked.

I couldn't finish this book. I tried on numerous occassion to force my way through it's choppy, stacatto prose but in the end, I gave up. I'm not sure if it was the story itself or if it was the translation, but this booked irked me to no end. ( )

Avraham est décidément un "policier" très intéressant. Complexe mais par artificiel, erratique et méthodique. ( )

On the whole I was rather disappointed by this book, it had all the ingredients needed to make it a gripping police thriller, but somehow it never really took off.
It was interesting reading a book set in Israel - the action takes place in Tel Aviv - but the main two characters,Inspector Avraham and the man he is suspicious of, Chaim Sara - seemed very strange and muddled in their thinking and actions. Avraham seemed more inclined to make up his mind about the guilt of Sara without any hard evidence, and was trying to make Sara's actions fit with his thinking which completely coloured his actions, and was very unprofessional for a cop. Sara just seemed strange altogether, there were so many unexplained loose ends about his behaviour.
One thing particularly annoyed me, this is the 2nd book featuring Avraham and quite a bit of it was taken up explaining the details of the case that was featured in the 1st book, thus spoiling it for readers who were not reading the series in order. Towards the very end of the book, for no apparent reason, some details were given of what is obviously going to be a new case, and then just left dangling - presumably they will feature in book three. I nearly DNF this book. ( )

Mishani is psychologisch sterk. Dat blijkt niet alleen uit de evolutie die Avraham doormaakt, maar ook uit het verhaal van de zwijgzame vader die wanhopig probeert door te dringen tot zijn kinderen nu hun moeder volledig uit beeld is verdwenen. Het minste wat je kan zeggen is dat niet alleen in Scandinavië tobbende inspecteurs rondlopen.
