When young social activist Michal Poleg is found dead in her Tel Aviv apartment, her body showing signs of severe violence, officer Anat Nachmias is given the lead on her first murder investigation. Eager to find answers, she focuses on the last days before Michal's death. Could one of the asylum seekers Michal worked with be behind this crime? When a young African man confesses to the murder, Anat isn't convinced, and is pulled deep into a perplexing shadow world where war victims and criminals, idealists and cynics, aid organizations and criminal syndicates intersect.
"Joseph Finder hailed Liad Shoham's previous book, Lineup, as "a marvel of tight plotting, sparse prose, and relentless pacing." A young police officer's search for the truth about the murder of a young woman drives this new thriller from the #1 international bestseller"-- Provided by publisher.
