Police detective Avraham Avraham knows that when a crime is committed in his sleepy suburb of Tel Aviv, there is little need for a complex investigation. There are no serial killers or kidnappings here. The perpetrator is usually the neighbor, the uncle, or the father. As he has learned, the simplest explanation is always the answer. But his theory is challenged when a sixteen-year-old boy named Ofer Sharabi disappears without a trace while on his way to school one morning. There is no simple explanation, and Avraham's ordered world is consumed by the unimaginable perplexity of the case.

The first 100 pages is like watching paint dry but picks up at the end. The twists and turns found at the end of the book show promise of a better effort in this author's next (second) book.

This book ends with the three words no reader wants to see: "To Be Continued." Why? There's been time enough to solve the crime, get Avi to stop smoking, and visit Brussels.
