International bestselling author Liad Shoham makes his English-language debut in this compelling, superbly plotted crime thriller.
After a brutal rape disturbs a quiet Tel Aviv neighbourhood, baffled detectives find no clues, no eyewitnesses, and no suspects. But the father of the shattered victim refuses to rest until justice is done, and begins his own investigation. Keeping watch over his daughter’s apartment from the street, he notices Ziv Nevo lurking in the shadows, and hands him over to the police. All circumstances — and the victim — point to Nevo’s guilt, and it appears the case is closed. Detective Eli Nachum is eager to wrap up this high-profile case, which has threatened to thwart his career.
But why does the suspect keep silent during the interrogation? What secret is he hiding? What unfolds is a brilliant, fast-paced story that will keep you guessing until the very last page. Lineup is a twisted tale of mistaken identity, organised crime, a disgraced detective looking for redemption, a tireless young reporter, and an innocent man with a not-so-innocent past. Which lines will they cross, and what will they be willing to risk, as their worlds begin to collapse? This seamless, gripping novel introduces a powerful new voice in crime fiction.
