(From the publisher):
When the young social activist Michal Poleg is found dead near her Tel Aviv apartment, her body showing signs of severe violence, officer Anat Nachmias is given the lead on her first murder investigation. Eager to find answers, the talented and sensitive cop looks to the victim's past for clues, focusing on the last day before her death. Could one of the asylum seekers Michal worked with be behind this crime?
Then a young African man confesses to the murder and Anat's commanders say the case is closed. But the cop isn't convinced. She believes that Michal, a tiny girl with a gift for irritating people, became involved in something too big and dangers for her to handle.
Joined by Michal's clumsy yet charming boss, Anat is pulled into a perplexing shadow world, where war victims and criminals, angels and demons, idealists and cynics, aid organizations and criminal syndicates, intersect. But the truth may be more than Anat can handle, bringing her face to face with an evil she's never before experienced.
