They’re back…

Internationally best-selling suspense master Adiva Geffen in going to launch you on a whirlwind adventure with Israel’s mostly hotly pursued private detectives. And this time the good guys might not win.

How far will they go?

After finding and securing Daria, a young runaway, Sammy and Dikla are left slack-jawed upon discovering her dead body. Local police determine the case to be an open-and-shut suicide, but a far more sinister plot is about to be uncovered.

Drama, Pain & Passion…

Follow these never-say-die investigators down the rabbit-hole of heaven-sent cults and con-artists as they attempt to reveal the truth once and for all, while juggling raw, heated relationships and heart-pounding drama. Real-life, down-to-earth dialogue will put you in the front row seat of a story that will make the bath water go cold around you.

In Missing, Sammy and Dikla are two private detectives in Israel. After finding and securing a young runaway named Daria, they’re shocked upon discovering Daria’s dead body. Local police determine the case is a suicide, but neither Sammy nor Dikla is convinced. Revealing the truth won’t be easy though, and they’ll have to put themselves in harm’s way and take a lot of risks for the truth to be unveiled.

Both Sammy and Dikla are likeable characters, although Dikla was my favorite. The book offers a fair share of unexpected twists and turns, and the mystery isn’t cut and clear from the get-go; readers are left guessing for a good while as to what is going on.

The book reads like watching a TV show, like following the characters on NCSI or Criminal Minds, or something along those lines. The action is non-stop, the pacing relentlessly fast, and you get sucked in before you even finish the first chapter.

Recommended to fans of mysteries and thrillers.
