Summary "A witness sees a man with a limp abandon a suitcase near a suburban Tel Aviv daycare center. The explosive device it contains tuns out to be a dud, but a few hours after the discovery, the daycare receives a phone call: The suitcase is only the beginning. Although the police are quick to finger a known felon as a suspect, Detective Avraham Avraham is not convinced after he volunteers to conduct the investigation. So he returns to the quiet streets of this family-friendly neighborhood in his search for answers, treating no one--not the teacher, not the children's parents--above suspicion. Despite his colleagues' dismissals, Avraham keeps coming back to one man. A father of two, Avraham's person of interest does not seem like the criminal type ... until he suddenly vanishes, and jagged holes start appearing in his story. Much to Avraham's frustration, each development appears to take him further and further away from the answers he so desperately seeks"--Dust jacket.
