The Dead Sister tells a story of the murder of a young woman, a case that the Tel Aviv police are reluctant to investigate rigorously. Adam Lapid is hired by the victim’s brother who wants him to find the killer, but not to tell the police who it is. The brother wants to exact his revenge personally on whoever killed his sister.

Adam Lapid launches an investigation into the murder, an investigation that quickly plunges him into a dark underworld of crime and debauchery. Along the way, Adam will meet an irresistible woman and will have to do battle with a crafty and sinister killer.

The villain in this novel is quite willing to kill again and again in order to evade capture. Adam Lapid will need to marshal all his strength and ingenuity in order to prevail.

The Dead Sister has a 4+ rating on both Amazon and Goodreads. It is not a long read but it is a complete murder mystery that you can enjoy even if you haven’t read book 1 in the series, Ten Years Gone.

Adam Lapid Reading Order

Now that the third novel in the Adam Lapid mysteries series is about to be published, I thought it would be a good time to talk about the order in which you should read the books.

Each book in the Adam Lapid series is a standalone mystery so you can read them in any order you wish. Some people read The Auschwitz Violinist first and then proceed to read The Dead Sister, and others read them in the opposite order.

While it is true that some of the characters appear in more than one of the books, I believe your enjoyment won’t suffer whether you begin the series with one book or the other.

That being said, you may wish to read the books in order, and in that case, there are two possible orders you may choose from. You may choose to read the books in the order in which they were published, or you may wish to read them in chronological order.

The first book I published was The Dead Sister, the second was The Auschwitz violinist, and the third is the upcoming Ten Years Gone. However, the internal chronological order of the books is different. Ten Years Gone takes place in the summer of 1949, The Dead Sister a few months afterward, and The Auschwitz Violinist occurs about a year after the conclusion of The Dead Sister.

Since Ten Years Gone is only available for pre-order, you may wish to order that and wait until you read it before you dive into The Dead Sister. But if you decide you can’t wait and you want to read my work right this minute, which would be a very wise decision on your part, you can read either The Dead Sister or The Auschwitz Violinist. Opinion is divided as to which of these two books is better, and I can’t quite make up my mind as well. My point is that you shouldn’t worry too much about which book you read first. Just pick whichever one seems the most interesting and dive right in. I’m sure you’ll have a good time.
