  2. Dear Mr. Mishani,
    I thoroughly enjoyed reading “The MIssing File” and look forward to the English edition of “A Possibility of Violence”–my Hebrew is very poor.
    From the book jacket I learn that your academic work involves the history of detective fiction. I have taught a senior undergraduate level course “Investigating Mystery and Crime Fiction” for the past few years at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.
    The next time I teach this course, I would love to include one of your novels.
    Thank you,
