Rejected by his lover and recovering from a near-fatal car crash, Breznitz returns to his police unit, where he is assigned to investigate an unusual murder. An unidentified man is found near Jerusalem, an Arab suspect is apprehended and quickly confesses. Breznitz, however, is not convinced that he is the real killer. The investigation becomes an obsession for him, ultimately altering his life...
The author uses the traditional tools of the detective story - a body, the investigator with an unusual personality and a compulsion to reveal the truth - to investigate themes, not normally associated with the genre. Identities, and their absence, are central to the story.
This is a disturbing, probing book, unlikely to be read and forgotten.
