Mishani's The Man Who Wanted to Know Everything is a hauntingly psychological domestic noir, perfect for fans of Alafair Burke or Liad Shoham.

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...Told through the dual perspectives of Inspector Avraham and Mazal Bengtson, The Man Who Wanted To Know Everything is a chilling investigation of secrets, family, and what happens when the people you love may not be who you think.
