Liad Shoham, the #1 bestselling author in Israel, makes his American debut with Lineup--a superbly plotted, uncompromising crime thriller.

A brutal rape in a quiet Tel Aviv neighborhood has the police baffled. There are no witnesses, suspects, or clues, until the victim's father steps in and finds overwhelming evidence pointing to Ziv Nevo.

Veteran detective Eli Nahum questions Nevo, but can't get anything out of him. That's because Nevo has a secret. He works for the mafia, and telling the truth about why he was near the crime scene could get him killed.

Lineup focuses on these two men, detective and suspect, as they both end up betraying what they value most, fighting for their lives, and struggling make amends for their mistakes in this gritty, fast-paced, complex novel of suspense.

Back cover copy

A brutal rape in a quiet Tel Aviv neighborhood has the police baffled. Detective Eli Nahum is eager to wrap up the high-profile case, and sees an easy conviction when the victim's angry father delivers a likely suspect.

Although Ziv Nevo has done some bad things, he's not a rapist. But he can't tell the cops why he was lurking in the shadows near the crime scene. When the investigation goes awry, Nevo is freed and Nahum is fired.

Then another rape occurs. Certain it's Nevo, the cops are determined to send him to prison. But darker forces are planning to send him to his grave. With his life on the line, this innocent man has one hope for survival--a disgraced former detective named Eli Nahum, who's going to find the truth no matter the cost.
