Summary Excerpt Comments

is a mystery set in the context of the Middle East Peace Process. The hero, Yossi Abulafia, is an Israeli policeman on army reserve duty near the Jordanian border. Instead of watching the border, he is taking photographs of antelope when the observation post he is sitting in collapses and he is seriously injured. During the accident, he unwittingly takes a photograph of what appears to be a murder -- on the other side of the border with Jordan.

 

As a result of his accident, he is transferred to a boring desk job. He uses his connections to try and investigate what happened on the other side of the river. In the course of his new job, he travels to Amsterdam for a conference where he meets Aziz -- a Jordanian police officer. During the few days they are together, the two men become friends, but are attacked twice by an unknown assailant - the ‘shooter’. The first attack passes without any damage, but the second is far more serious. Both men are shot, Yossi loses consciousness and is returned to Israel.

 

As a result of his disabilities from the second accident, Abulafia is discharged from the police force against his will. He is semi-crippled, walks with difficulty and the aid of a cane. His close friend Yehiel, a lawyer and now special advisor to the Prime Minister, offers Yossi a job. Yehiel is in charge of the secret negotiations being conducted with the Palestinians in Oslo. Yossi, who is not enthusiastic about the idea of talking to the PLO, becomes his general factotum and police liaison.

 

In the course of the negotiations, Yossi identifies one of the PLO delegates as the shooter from Amsterdam. He has also identified him from an old photograph as being connected to the murderer from across the river. Together with another friend -- Arieh, who is about to retire from the Mossad (the Israeli Foreign Intelligence Service) -- he kidnaps the shooter and interrogates him. The interrogation ostensibly concerns the shooting in Amsterdam and the shooter’s connection to radical Palestinian factions. The Israelis wish to give this information to the leaders of the PLO delegation, in order to discredit the shooter, who is operating is operating under an alias. The Israelis do not want to negotiate with the radicals and the PLO does not want the radicals on their team. Yossi’s ulterior motive is to find out about the shooter’s connection to the man he suspects is a murderer.
