Bait

Shulamit Lapid
Journalist and freelance sleuth Lizzy Badihi is a feminist heroine with big feet and cheap earrings, who gradually grows from an ugly duckling into a swan. She gets involved in a breathless plot that revolves around a double murder. The thread, unravelled by Interpol, leads to Beersheba, a city in Israel's Southern desert, and to two aged French singers. But what does this have to do with Tami Simon, the daughter of local millionaires who are high-ranking arms and property dealers? It's the winter of 1991, at the height of the Gulf War. Between Scud missile alerts, Lizzy helps to solve a murder while putting herself in hair-raising danger.


A rarity that tells us a lot about contemporary Israeli society.
Liberation

An enchanting story, an excellent piece of work.
Notes Bibliographiques 

A passionate detective novel, set in a vulnerable society. It is a story that catches your breath.
Tribune Juive

Cynical, funny, suspenseful.
