A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

The past few years have allowed us a most welcome introduction to crime fiction from many other countries, with Scandinavia, France and Italy very much to the fore, but this impressive novel is one of the first that I have come across of Israeli Noir. On her first homicide assignment, Anat, a young female Tel Aviv cop investigates the violent death of a social activist. Looking into the victim's past for a motive and clues to the crime, she is drawn into the world of asylum-seekers and the complex political situation the influx of African migrants has provoked. Both assisted and hindered by the victim's boss, Anat is soon confronting unwelcome realities and a layer of evil she had never suspected existed. Contemporary and anything but black and white, this clever mystery is a great example of socially-conscious mystery writing and well worth a detour. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
