9780062223340: The Missing File LP (Avraham Avraham)

A sixteen-year-old boy is missing in a Tel Aviv suburb. His mother is worried. Inspector Avraham Avraham is not. It is unheard of for children to vanish in this city.

'He'll be home in an hour, maybe three hours, tomorrow morning at the latest. I can assure you.'

But there's a first time for everything. And, as time begins to pass, and the boy is still nowhere to be found, Avraham finds himself facing this horrible truth.

The Missing File presents a seemingly average detective and a seemingly routine investigation, and then shows both to be far from what they seem. A supremely confident crime thriller, its unexpected resolution will force readers to question all they take for granted about innocence, guilt and the ways in which the truth can evade us.

Review:

'A wonderfully satisfying detective mystery, with a heartbreaking finale. A tense, gripping page-turner that I devoured in two days' S.J. Watson, bestselling author of Before I Go to Sleep.

'Impressive! D.A. Mishani writes with profound originality and his main character is a quite remarkable man on the stage where detectives dance. Once again: impressive!' Henning Mankell.

'Marks the start of what could become a fine series of detective novels, centred on a striking detective - the lugubrious, self-doubting Inspector' Daily Mail.

'An assured debut, with a wholly unexpected resolution' Guardian, best crime and thrillers of 2013.

From the Back Cover:

'Do you know why there are no detective novels in Hebrew?' asked Inspector Avraham. 'What?' 'What aren't there any detective novels? Why doesn't Israel produce books like those of Agatha Christie or 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'?' 'I don't read much,' she replied. 'Then I'll tell you. Because we don't have crimes like that. We don't have serial killers; we don't have kidnappings; there's simply no mystery here. What I am trying to say is that I think there is very little chance that something has happened to your son.'

Book Description Harperluxe, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. large type edition. 226 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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 Avraham s 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. It s a mystery that will leave readers questioning the notions of innocence and guilt, and the nebulous nature of truth. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062223340
