Why does Nevo keep silent during the interrogation? What secret is he hiding? What should veteran investigator Eli Nahum, who has vowed to crack the case, understand from the suspect's silence?
At the centre of Line Up are two completely different men, suspect and investigator. Both will betray what they value most, fight for their lives, and make amends for their mistakes. What will they be willing to risk, which lines will they cross as their worlds begin to collapse?
Into the whirlwind of events several other characters are drawn: an idealistic young district attorney who witnesses her ideals being betrayed, a mafia boss' right-hand man, an ambitious reporter chasing the scoop of a lifetime.
Line Up is a fast-paced, multi-voiced thriller, often hiding more than it reveals before it resolves in a climactic finale. Liad Shoham is Israel's leading thriller writer and his books Retrial, A Week in the Life, Unlisted Number and Fruit of the Poisonous Tree have all been critically acclaimed best sellers.
