“The man who wanted to know”, a sequel to Dror A. Mishani’s international bestsellers, “The Missing File” and “A Possibility of Violence“, is now out in Hebrew (published by Achuzat Bayit).
And this is what the back cover can reveal about the new investigation:
“The man who wanted to know”, the third Avraham novel, is the most daring in this acclaimed crime series so far. Called on a stormy day to his first murder scene as the new commander of investigations, Avraham is astounded to discover he knows the victim: a middle-aged woman who had been assaulted in the past. His only lead is an eyewitness claiming he saw a policeman going down the building’s staircase a few minutes after the murder.
Eager to solve his first murder case, Avraham is determined to follow this lead even though it puts him in conflict with the entire police force. It’ll take him to another strange crime scene, with only an umbrella as a clue, and then to Mazal Bengtson – a young woman who doesn’t know anything about the murder yet is to change everything Avraham thought about the case.
Told through the alternating perspectives of Inspector Avraham and a woman fighting to be freed of her tortured past, “The man who wanted to know” is a haunting investigation of marital life gone wrong, and at the same a heart-breaking story of enduring love, endangered by death and unthinkable desire.
