The Ransom

Yoav Levitas Halevy
This complex thriller revolves around two mysteries: a murder and an unexplained ransom. The story is set in the pastoral estate of Raphael Saporta, a legendary tycoon and Zionist founding father.The mystery begins when a young caretaker is found murdered. Police link his killing to one of Saporta's sons, a widely respected lawyer who was about to pay an enormous ransom. Did he pay the ransom? The lawyer is brought to the hospital in a deep coma and the puzzle of the ransom remains unresolved. Months after, a skeleton is accidentally found on the grounds near the Saporta estate. Suddenly the web of secrets entwining the family begins to unravel.


A sweeping thriller... Levitas is certainly a master in the construction of a gripping plot.... I hope The Ransom is the first in a long series.
