Description 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.

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.

A little disappointing in that I didn't get a real sense of Tel Aviv. But interesting fairly complicated plot.

Foolish, egotistical, and nasty individuals wreak havoc in Liad Shoham's "Lineup," translated from the Hebrew by Sara Kitai. The novel is set in Tel-Aviv, where veteran detective Eli Nahum lives and works. Nahum is eager to prove to his detractors that he has not lost his edge. His latest case involves a sadistic rapist who assaults young women. Before long, the authorities arrest a man named Ziv Nevo and try to force a confession out of him. Although Nevo maintains that he is innocent, why was he seen wandering through a deserted neighborhood near the home of one of the victims? Adding to the hysteria, a local reporter, Amit Giladi--who is desperate to satisfy his overbearing editor--harasses witnesses and looks for sensational angles that will sell newspapers.

There are plenty of disreputable types on hand, such as: cops who are more concerned with arrest rates and the number of cases they close than they are with dispensing justice; members of the media who will do anything to scoop the competition; and criminals who enjoy inflicting pain. To his credit, the author makes an effort to humanize his characters, so that even if we do not sympathize with them, at least we can understand how they feel. Nevo, who is divorced but adores his little boy, is weak-willed and easily led astray; Amit Giladi is frustrated at having to take abuse from his spiteful boss, and longs for the day when he can leave his dead-end job for a more lucrative and prestigious position; Nahum, like so many other law-enforcement officials, is tempted to cut corners, figuring that the ends justify the means. Consequently, he makes a serious error that he will later regret.

The plot is absorbing enough, although as the story progresses, it becomes increasingly contrived and far-fetched. In addition, the language is overwrought and cliché-ridden: "The adrenaline was still rushing through his veins." "He'd give it his all, not leave any stone unturned." "Then he'd show that snake in the grass who was king of the jungle." "Lineup" is set in Israel, but the action could just as easily have taken place in Newark or the Bronx, since very little that occurs is unique to this particular locale. On a positive note, several of the wrongdoers in "Lineup" do make an effort to redeem themselves. Overall, however, Liad Shoham offers a grim depiction of ruthless, predatory, and self-serving miscreants who are devoid of basic human decency.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent procedural marred by poor ending 7 janvier 2014
Par Alan A. Elsner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Liad Shoham has been hailed as Israel's leading crime writer. In an essay published by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, he said he based this, his first book to be published in English, on the real-life headlines of a Tel Aviv rape that went unsolved.

There's certainly a lot of criminal procedure in this book which begins with aforesaid brutal rape of a young woman who is severely traumatized by the assault. When her father stakes out her apartment hoping the rapist might return to the scene of the crime, he sees someone who looks similar behaving suspiciously. That's enough for Detective Eli Nahum to bring in the suspect, Ziv Nevo, convinced that he's got his man.

Nevo, who emerges as the nearest thing the book has to a hero, is involved in criminal activity. His life has gone off the rails and he's gotten mixed up with a mobster. But he's no rapist. Also involved in the plot are a young reporter and various members of the legal profession, both prosecutors and defense lawyers.

Shoham is very good at describing the political pressures on the police and prosecutors to bring in a conviction, which leads them to blur the lines of procedure and cut corners. He's much less good when it comes to the world of the reporter.

I enjoyed this book - but it has two major weaknesses. The protagonist, Nevo, for much of the volume is a weak, sniveling and rather creepy character, hard to get behind. The other main actor, Eli Nahum, is also flawed but not strongly enough drawn to make a really tragic hero in the mold let's say of Joe Nebo's Harry Hole. And the author doesn't manage to generate a lot of tension.

The other problem is the resolution of the plot and unmasking of the rapist - which is not properly prepared and seems utterly unrealistic.

I was struck by the fact that the book did not have a strong sense of local color. There is one foray to the West Bank but most of the action took place in Tel Aviv, which did not come across strongly as a backdrop. So what we have here is a highly competent procedural, marked by insight into the political world, but marred by a weak ending.
