Police detective Avi Avraham has to investigate the disappearance of a teenage boy, Ofer Sharabi. The Sharabi’s neighbor, Ze’ev Avni is a writer, and creepily interested in this case, interfering in strange ways. As Avi ventures into the search for Ofer, NOTHING is as it seems!
The Missing File by D. A. Mishani was awesome. I don’t usually pick up mysteries, but I received this book from TLC Book Tours and was hooked immediately. The story is told from alternating perspectives, with every other chapter being told from the police detective’s point of view or from the POV of Ze’ev (the creepy neighbor).
And when I say NOTHING is as it seems, it’s so true. When I thought I figured it out, there was another twist. There were honestly twists until almost the last page!
My only complaint was the title. The Missing File? At one point, the police detective takes the file home with him. But that’s it. It’s more about a missing person. This book was translated into English from Hebrew, so maybe there is a double meaning that doesn’t translate properly, but don’t be deceived by the title. This book has nothing to do with a search for a missing file.
The Missing File is the first part in a series of books and I would read more in a heartbeat. However, you can read The Missing File and still feel like you have read a complete story, because basically, you have.
I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
