Perhaps Israel's most hardboiled detective, AVRAM COHEN, once one of that country's top cops and a high-ranking police official, is forced into retirement, and subsequently finds himself put in the position of investigation privately. "True, he doesn't hang out a shingle or call himself a P.I.," admits his creator Robert Rosenberg, "but he definitely behaves like one."
Okay, maybe not your typical P.I. adventures. Cohen's lives in Jerusalem, for one thing. Also, trouble seems to follow him whether he's a player or not. He may even occasionally stumble over a body or two, but this is no rank amateur sleuth. Not with his experience.
Robert Rosenberg grew up ij the suburbs of Boston, and worked as a journalist for fifteen years before writing 1991's Crimes of he City, his first novel. He now lives in Israel, near the beach in Tel Aviv.
