I enjoyed the first Dotan Naor book, 'Death in Shangri-la' which I read earlier this year, so was pleased to see a second one had been translated into English.
This time we follow Naor to Bangkok, in search of a missing Israeli woman. The mystery was intriguing, and grew quite complicated. The plot moved quickly, so I'm hesitant to say anything beyond that. I often had no idea where things were going, but was happy enough to follow along!
There were some unexpected snippets a ...more

It is a wonderful mixture of private investigator, and social commentary, spirituality, corruption and even a sprinkling of romance thrown in.
This is fast paced, thoroughly ...more

If you liked Y. Zur style of #1, you will definitely like #2. I had problems with it.
I mostly like Dotan Naor when he is working alone aka without any other characters around. Then I think he blooms as a character, has time to acknowledge background and I can take a glimpse into his mind (of an investigator) as a reader. Shitstorm happens when Dotan is around other people. Somehow everything falls into places too easily - the first cab driver has ...more
