At long last, Ten Years Gone, book 1 of the Adam Lapid Mysteries series, is live on Amazon.
This is the third published novel featuring Adam Lapid, but it takes place first in the internal chronology of the series. However, each novel in the Adam Lapid series is a standalone mystery so people read them in any order.
In Ten Years Gone, Adam Lapid is hired by Henrietta Ackerland, a Jewish woman who has just arrived in Israel (in 1949), after masquerading as a Christian German throughout the war.
In 1939, Henrietta made a terrible decision: her husband had been arrested by the Nazis and she had a baby son that she feared for. A woman she knew by the name of Esther was about to leave Germany for the Land of Israel. Henrietta prevailed upon her to take her son, Willie, along with her.
Henrietta planned to follow shortly but managed to get to Israel only ten years later. During that time, she’d had no word from Esther or Willie. She now wants Adam Lapid to find them.
Naturally, things get complicated in a hurry.
