The Man Who Wanted to Know Everything / D.A. Mishani, 289 pp.
The Missing File and A Possibility of Violence, does not disappoint. An older women is found strangled in her apartment and signs point to her estranged son. But Avraham remembers the victim from the past, and this is what nags at him as the case proceeds. More of a whydunit than a whodunit, which seems to be Mishani's hallmark, we learn about the murderer early on, but don't quite understand his crime until the end.
