Three seemingly disparate women in Israel are united by a troubling secret in this psychological thriller.
When Orna meets Gil on an online dating site, their lackluster affair seems like nothing more than a way to stave off the pain of her recent divorce. But soon it becomes clear that Gil may not be exactly who he claims to be. And Orna's own lies may be weaving an unexpected trap for her.
Set against the turbulent backdrop of the gritty Holon neighborhood in Tel Aviv, this enigmatic and intelligent novel is in fact an intricate puzzle. Mishani's first standalone book explores Israel's forgotten margins, unearthing complicated layers, conflicts, and prejudices. At turns shocking, deceptive, and subversive, Three is a slow burning psychological thriller from one of Israel's most beloved writers.
"[A] thoughtful puzzle mystery. . . . To be sure, there are scenes of genuine terror . . . But there are also surprising plot twists and smart character insights, not to mention some terrific Tel Aviv street scenes." —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
"Mishani . . . displays a superior gift for psychological suspense in this taut and twisty standalone. . . . Mishani imbues his flawed, plausibly-drawn characters with a deep melancholy, spinning the noirish elements into a deeply satisfying conclusion. Mishani demonstrates a real flair for literary crime fiction." —Publishers Weekly
