After attending her father's funeral, former Mossad agent Rachel Goldschmitt empties her bank account and disappears. Not knowing her whereabouts or her intentions, the Mossad opens an urgent investigation to track her down, fearing the incalculable damage she could do to Israel. What unfolds is a story that explores how love, loyalty, and truth can get caught between an agent's assumed identity and her real one.
Yiftach Reicher Atir draws on his own career in intelligence to delve into the inner workings of the mind of a spy, hewing so closely to actual operations that Israeli military censors redacted several details. The result is a psychologically nuanced thriller that explores the pressures and uncertainty of living undercover for months at a time. (Synopsis taken from publisher information on back cover.)

The redacted text must have been quite sensitive, because what remains is fairly explosive. The publisher's brief biography of the author says he has written four novels. This one, the third, which originally was published in Israel in 2013 and translated in 2016, apparently is the only one to be translated into English. That's too bad, because I liked The English Teacher.
