Summary note:
Called on a stormy night to the scene of his first murder investigation as the new commander of investigations, Inspector Avraham Avraham is shocked to discover that he knows the victim: Leah Yeger, a widow found brutally murdered in her home and the victim of a rape that he investigated some years prior. But with her rapist still behind bars, Avraham's only lead is an eyewitness claiming he saw a policeman leave the scene of the crime--a policeman who seems to have since vanished into thin air. Risking the cooperation of his police force, Avraham is determined to follow the lead, working feverishly to solve the case--no matter the cost. But when his investigation leads him to Mazal Bengtson--a young woman struggling to escape a tortured past and salvage a marriage gone horribly wrong--the complex case takes on an even more baffling, disturbing turn.
