When young volunteer at the Organization for a Migrant Aid, Michal Poleg is found dead after actively helping refugees and asylum seekers in Israel, Officer Anat Nachiamas is given her first lead on a murder investigation. Things get super confusing super quickly when a refugee that Poleg gave her time and energy to mentor confesses to the murder. Nachiamas, and her boss, Itai Fisher know it in their bones that he's not really the one to blame and begin to work together to find the real killer.
The topic, both social and political, may be a serious one (and it's not for everyone), but author Liad Shoham leaves room for romance and humor, and I just love a male writer who creates a strong female heroine. Asylum City is smart and the writing experienced.
