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.
"Starred Review. Mishani, the editor of international fiction and crime literature at Keter Books in Israel, puts his expertise in the genre to good use in combining the procedural and the puzzle with artful misdirection." -Publishers Weekly
"Mishani gives his unfortunately named sleuth a compelling debut in a complex case aimed straight at the reader's heart." - Kirkus
"The Missing File is a wonderfully satisfying detective mystery, with a heartbreaking finale. A tense, gripping page-turner that I devoured in two days - it's hard to believe it's a debut." - S.J. Watson, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Go to Sleep
