WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW
CAN NEVER HURT YOU


THE UNKNOWN

Mazal Bengtson doesn’t know what her husband was doing on the night of the storm. Inspector Avraham Avraham doesn’t know how to begin his first murder case.

THE KNOWN

What they do both know is something of the victim’s past that holds the key to understanding not just the murder, but stranger, more disturbing events.

THE UNKNOWABLE

For the things that happen in a long marriage, under strain may not always be against the law. Desperate to solve a terrible death, Avraham cannot mend what he cannot know.

Reviews

Avraham is quiet, stubbornly impressive and the novel is full of insights into love and sex
Marcel Berlins, The Times
*STAR PICK* Takes us into the hearts of these compassionately drawn characters. Sensitive, perceptive and quietly memorable.
Crime Club
He writes in such a cool, one-paced style . . . Powerful insight . . . 'Those Swedish and Danish cops, they're not real,' Mishani seems to be saying. 'My steady, plodding Israelis show what police work really is.'
