Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“This is a terrific book—a marvel of tight plotting, spare prose, and relentless pacing. It’s refreshingly cynical, deeply thrilling, and an exciting introduction to an author who’s set to become an international superstar.” (Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Paranoia and Buried Secrets)

“…. [A] brilliantly constructed crime thriller.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Lawyer/writer Shoham, dubbed the Israeli John Grisham, delivers a first-rate crime thriller in this first of his works to be translated to English.” (New York Post)

Lineup will grab you from the opening and take you on a seamless, unstoppable ride.” (National Examiner)

“What begins as a crime thriller becomes the story of a detective’s search for redemption.… Israeli author Shoham’s gritty [novel]…set in Tel Aviv…marks [his]…U.S. debut. Let’s hope he gives us many more stories like it.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Michael Connelly fans will appreciate this American debut by a best-selling Israeli author.” (Booklist)

“There are deals made, budding romances, car bombs that don’t detonate, a wannabe journalist-and a final, very satisfying resolution in which a telescope-bearing bubbe finally spills the beans.” (Hadassah Magazine)

“Liad Shoham has written a crime novel that is compelling on several different levels…. Whether one calls it a mystery, suspense, thriller, or crime novel, one must call it a very, very good book.” (New York Journal of Books)

“Shoham creates a full-blooded thriller in Lineup a novel with multiple shocks but blessedly free of cardboard characters. A smart and absorbing read, it offers readers who prefer thoughtful crime fiction a new voice and a riveting examination of justice systems.” (Alaska)

“Making his U.S. debut, best-selling Israeli author Shoham (the ‘Israeli John Grisham’) has written an enjoyable and compelling thriller that should appeal to fans of urban crime thrillers (such as those by Michael Connelly and Robert Crais).” (Library Journal)

“Set in Tel Aviv, Lineup has a fast-moving narrative…. Shoham manages to write a dark story with a light touch. He doesn’t shy away from the ugly aftereffects of violent crime, but he succeeds in delivering a page-turner with a subtle measure of gallows wit.” (Ellery Queen Magazine)

“An absorbing crime novel...[that reveals] the everyday side to Israeli life.” (Literary Review)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Liad Shoham, the #1 bestselling author in Israel, makes his American debut with Lineup—a superbly plotted, uncompromising crime thriller.
 
A brutal rape in a quiet Tel Aviv neighborhood has the police baffled. There are no witnesses, suspects, or clues, until the victim’s father steps in and finds overwhelming evidence pointing to Ziv Nevo.
 
Veteran detective Eli Nahum questions Nevo, but can’t get anything out of him. That’s because Nevo has a secret. He works for the mafia, and telling the truth about why he was near the crime scene could get him killed.
 
Lineup focuses on these two men, detective and suspect, as they both end up betraying what they value most, fighting for their lives, and struggling make amends for their mistakes in this gritty, fast-paced, complex novel of suspense.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 polar réaliste et dépaysant 28 octobre 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
J'ai beaucoup aimé ce roman policier, dont le style est nerveux, vif. Il décrit les forces et les faiblesses des hommes, dans leur métier, : policiers, journaliste, procureur. On a l'impression d'être proche de la réalité, avec les ambitions des uns qui viennent gripper les enquêtes, mais le profil psychologique des enquêteur/suspect n'est pas oublié, c'est ce qui fait entre autre le charme particulier de ce livre. J'attends avec impatience un autre livre de cet auteur.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An old-school cop proves his worth 2 août 2013
Par Patto - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Inspector Eli Nachum's forte has always been solving complex cases. But times are changing in the Israeli police force. Nowadays it's all about arrest rates and statistics. The higher-ups want to close cases as quickly as possible. Nachum feels the pressure, and when he gets a rape case with a very likely suspect, he pushes hard for a confession. He pushes even harder for the victim to identify the suspect on a line up. The only trouble is, all too late he begins to doubt the young man's guilt.

Line Up is an absorbing police procedural. Nachum, the old-school cop, makes an engaging hero, with his moral struggles and his efforts to survive the new cold climate in law enforcement. He infuriates us with his macho "gut feelings," charms us with his flashes of insight, and engages our sympathy with his fears of being over the hill.

The rape suspect is a wonderful example of a young man plagued by bad decisions and bad luck. The woman prosecutor is fun to see in action, plea-bargaining like someone haggling with a rug merchant at a bazaar. There's a kid journalist and a haranguing editor whose characters seem a bit exaggerated, but they have an interesting role in the plot. The plot is also enlivened by the steely boss of a crime syndicate and his devoted "soldiers."

The author is a practicing attorney, and he brings us inside the Israeli justice system with authority. The behavior of the cops, the defense attorneys, the prosecutors, the victims and their families felt very real to me. The translation from Hebrew felt seamless. I had no sense of anything being lost in translation.

I also liked the resolution of the story. Liad Shoham is said to be Israel's leading crime writer, so I'm hoping more of his work will be translated.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Israeli Thriller is a Page-Turner That Disappoints in the End 28 août 2013
Par A. Ross - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I read a lot of crime fiction from other countries, and having lived throughout the Middle East, including Tel Aviv for a year, I was excited to read this Israeli bestseller. It opens with the rape of a young single woman and shows the trauma this causes her and her parents. Inspector Eli Nachum is assigned the case, and in his eagerness to bring closure for the family, makes an error in judgement that allows the prime suspect off on a technicality and results in his suspension. As he struggles to come to grips with his error, he teams up with a bullied newspaper reporter to try and uncover the truth. Meanwhile, freed suspect has to try to untangle himself from the crime gang that's got their hooks in him.

The excellently-translated story is told from a few different angles (Nachum, the reporter, some lawyers, and the suspect primarily), and if this shades-of-grey, multiple-perspective narrative, and the themes remind you of The Wire, they should. The author has spoken about that show's influence on his work, and it permeates the story, right down to the police politics and namechecking of Comstat. In many ways, the story could be set in any large city -- there's not too much that mark it as specifically Israeli. I suppose one aspect that's germane to the plot is that some of the connections among characters are rooted in their shared Army service. Another is the proximity and primacy of family in the lives of the characters.

The book's a page-turner, but by the end I was left largely unsatisfied. Many of the characters felt rather generic, and many of the subplots (for example, a will-they, won't-they romance between a prosecutor and defense lawyer) felt recycled. But easily the biggest sin is that the plotting relies on several outlandish coincidences in order to work, and that's something that I can't stand. And if you're the kind of person who likes to suss out who the killer is, at a certain point about two-thirds of the way through, it becomes readily apparent who it is, simply because they're the last significant character who hasn't been checked out (plus, there's a pretty obvious clue about them early on). A much more interesting recent Israeli police procedural is D.A. Mishani's The Missing File and I've heard that the Jerusalem-set Avram Cohen series from the 1990s is worthwhile (starting with Crimes of the City). I also highly recommend the film Ajami for an unvarnished look at the criminal side of contemporary Israel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Schlimazel Swept Up into a Serial Rape Charge 7 septembre 2013
Par A. Silverstone - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Finally Liad Shoham is translated into English. Lineup is a great book to start with (let's hope we get to read more of his). Shoham is an attorney as well as author, and his knowledge of the legal system allows for great twists in turns of the plot. Ziv Nevo, a schlimazel (if it weren't for bad luck, he would have none at all), is falsely accused of a brutal rape. The rape victim's father spotted Nevo up to no good on the street near his daughter's house. Unfortunately for Nevo, he is mixed up, working for one of the underworld bosses, Shimon Faro, whose lieutenant David Meshulam, misleads Nevo into setting up a car bomb on an ADA's, of all people.

Due to tainted evidence, Ziv is released from prison, but then his troubles really begin to multiply. Meshulam is worried that both Ziv will tell the police about the car bomb and his boss Faro will find out about it. So, he wants to silence Ziv for good. Meanwhile there is another rape, so the police want poor Ziv back behind bars. And, the original detective, Eli Nachum, has been placed on leave (because of that tainted evidence), and he is trying to redeem his reputation and career.

Set mostly in Tel Aviv, with a cast of characters who rarely can do right, despite, often the best of attentions, Lineup pulls the reader into the story and doesn't let go until you reach the conclusion. Shoham does a fantastic job of describing the mishaps, false turns and poor decisions, right up to the end, when all the threads come together in quite a surprising way.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dark and Gritty, Sometimes Depressing but Always Interesting 10 septembre 2013
Par Bookreporter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The international flood of detective fiction continues unabated. LINEUP is Israeli noir, a fine debut novel by Liad Shoham (with translation duties deftly handled by Sara Katai). Set in Tel Aviv, the book is part mystery, part caper, and all good from beginning to end. If I were pitching it to someone, I'd call Shoham an Israeli Jason Starr, because this is precisely the type of book that Starr does so well. There are a bunch of bad guys in the mix, and the good guys aren't entirely sympathetic. Perhaps most importantly, readers can see themselves screwing up in exactly the same way the protagonist does.

LINEUP begins with a violent evening rape in a usually quiet and safe Tel Aviv neighborhood. The father of the victim is incensed with what he perceives (not altogether incorrectly) to be a lack of police progress. He begins his own investigation, haunting the area where the assault took place, and is sure that he has spotted the culprit when he sees a man named Ziv Nevo acting suspiciously. Nevo somewhat matches the victim's vague description of the rapist and is unable to give a good accounting for himself as to why he was in the neighborhood and what he was doing. Nevo is no angel; the reader does not learn precisely what he was doing in the area until much later in the book, but it certainly wasn't legal.

What is all but certain, however, is that Nevo did not commit the rape. That ultimately may not matter, though. Eli Nachum, the police detective in charge of the investigation, is feeling pressure from up above to close the case as quickly as possible. The district attorney wants a conviction. And Nevo's attorney, an overworked and uninterested public defender, needs to put the case behind him.

The problem is that Nachum and the prosecution really don't have any evidence. Nevo is jawboned into a plea bargain and released, a situation that worries his somewhat shady associates, who fear that he has cut a deal for his release. Worse, another rape is committed within hours of Nevo again becoming a free man. The mob and the police are both looking for him for the wrong reasons. The sad thing is that Nevo isn't a totally bad guy. Shoham does an excellent job of demonstrating how a very poor error in judgment leads to bad consequences, resulting in a bad choice that, when combined with the evil of bad companions, leads to...well, doing something that one shouldn't be doing and then getting blamed for something else. By the time the dust settles and the smoke clears, Nevo is in hiding, and his child and ex-wife are in as much danger as he is. Meanwhile, the true rapist is still out there.

LINEUP is a dark and gritty work, sometimes depressing but always interesting. Shoham wisely keeps the highly charged political situation in Israel out of the story, for the most part, using it only briefly as a scenic backdrop. He focuses on the issues of resolution and redemption as applicable to several of the characters, as well as the twin mysteries concerning the identity of the rapist and what Nevo was really doing when he attracted so much unfavorable attention. We'll look forward to more of Shoham's work --- he has published five novels in Israel thus far --- when the translations arrive, which hopefully will be sooner rather than later.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent! 8 septembre 2013
Par John B. Goode - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This is my first Liad Shoham book. It's written in Hebrew and translated into English. The translation was seamless and I never would have known if I wasn't told it was a translation. The plot of the book is spoiled in the description already so I won't repeat it here.

This is an old style police procedural and I mean old style in more than one way. The book has the feel of a book written in the 70's. New books seem to have a lot of action, twists, violence and seem to be written to shock the senses, much like certain current movies which have more CGI than story.

This book was written the old fashioned way, it relies on story and characters. What it doesn't have are cliffhangers at the end of chapters, fast car chases, handsome heroes/beautiful heroines or fantastic weapons. Instead, what we get is a solid plot and solid characters.

The book takes us through the story by following the characters as they go about their business. We see the story from the detective's point of view as he goes from one lead to another. We also see the story from a reporter, a purported antagonist and others as they go about their businesses. The book finally ends when all the characters' stories merge and you find out what it's all about.

The story doesn't have edge of the seat excitement but it's nevertheless satisfying. This is the way that a lot of detective stories were written half a decade ago and it's enjoyable to find one like that and also one that's well written. You could also call it slow and steady.

It's a solid detective story and I would definitely read another one of Liad Shoham's books.
