On the dusty streets of post-war Tel Aviv, a crafty killer roams free…
Israel, 1949 – Private detective Adam Lapid knows how it feels to lose everything. His whole family died in Auschwitz. He barely survived. Now he spends his nights haunted by nightmares and his days solving cases the police won’t handle.
Hired to find a missing boy, Adam thinks the case is hopeless. But he can’t turn down a mother searching for her only child.
What Adam doesn’t realize is that this case will soon put him in mortal danger. For at the root of the mystery lies a double murder that has stayed unsolved for ten long years.
Adam must untangle a web of lies and betrayal to get to the truth. And he’d better watch his back because some of the suspects are willing to kill to keep their dark secrets buried.
Ten Years Gone, has been included in the Jewish Book Council's annual book club reading guide for 2022-2023. It is the first of seven novels featuring private detective Adam Lapid.
