Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Police detective Avraham Avraham knows that when a crime is committed in his quiet suburb of Tel Aviv, there is little need for a complex investigation. It's usually the neighbor, the uncle, the father. He has found that the simplest explanation is always the answer.

But his theory is challenged when a sixteen-year-old boy named Ofer disappears without a trace while on his way to school one morning. There is no simple explanation, and the more Avraham finds out about the boy, the more perplexing the case becomes. Avraham's best lead is Ofer's older neighbor. His information sheds new light on the case—and makes him a likely suspect. But will his strange story save the investigation?

The Missing File is a suspenseful tale that introduces an indelible new detective and offers an evocative portrait of suburban life with a universal reach. As it draws to its startling conclusion, D.A. Mishani's twisting mystery will have readers questioning notions of innocence and guilt, and the nebulous nature of truth.

Synopsis:

In The Missing File, Israeli detective Avraham Avraham must find a teenage boy gone missing from the suburbs of Tel Aviv in this first volume in a fresh new literary crime series by D. A. Mishani.

Crimes in Avrahams quiet suburb are generally not all that complex. But when a sixteen-year-old boy goes missing and a schoolteacher offers up a baffling complication, Avraham finds himself questioning everything he thought he knew about his life.

Told through alternating points of view, The Missing File is an emotionally wrought, character-driven page-turner with plenty of twists and turns. Its a mystery that will leave readers questioning the notions of innocence and guilt, and the nebulous nature of truth.
