BOOK OF THE WEEK

A POSSIBILTY OF VIOLENCE by D. A. Mishani

Haunted by the past and his own limitations, Israeli Detective Avraham must stop a ruthless criminal targeting children. An explosive device is found in a suitcase near a daycare center in a quiet suburb of Tel Aviv. A few hours later, a threat is received: the suitcase was only the beginning. Inspector Avraham is assigned to the investigation. Tormented by the trauma and failure of his past case, Avraham is determined not to make the same mistakes. He may have a break when one of the suspects, a father of two, appears to have gone on the run. Is he the terrorist behind the threat? Or perhaps he’s fleeing a far more terrible crime that no one knows has been committed? No matter how much Avraham wants to atone for the past, redemption may not be possible, not when he’s entangled in a case more deceptive and abominable than any he’s ever faced.

A thrilling novel set in Tel Aviv, the author uses human psychology and secrets in a tale of investigation. The story is told from multiple viewpoints, spinning a web of deception that the characters must navigate in their quest for answers.
