Fire in a Haystack (Legal Thriller #1) by Erez Aharoni

Fire in a Haystack

I received this book at a discount in exchange for an honest review.

—————————

Ofer Angel tends to be a trouble maker at school. Just the day before, his father was in the vice-principal’s office because he decided to moon some other students. His father didn’t yell at him or belittle him. Instead, they went out for pizza and had a nice day. Then before they separated ways his father slaps him across the face and tells him he needs to man up and quit acting like a child.

The next day, during a commotion in class dealing with a mouse, the vice-principal enters the room and requests for Ofer. He follows her and then she tells him that he needs to return home because there is something wrong with his father. He is escorted home and when he gets there, the apartment is packed. He learns of his father’s death. He overhears a few men talking and learns of his father doing some shady stuff. It was the shame of the shady dealings that led him to kill himself.

Fast forward ten years to the future. Ofer is now in his mid-twenties. He went to law school and is now an intern at a prestigious law firm. He is supposed to stay with a witness to a trail. The witness dismisses him and seeing no problem with leaving him alone, Ofer leaves. He waits in the hotel lobby for the witness, who happens to be one of the men he overheard talking about his father on the same day he perished.

Ofer gets a maid to open the room to the witnesses suite after bribing her with money and stating he’ll loose his job if he doesn’t get him there immediately. He stumbles around, not having a card to turn the light on. He turns over the witnesses suitcase and contents spill everywhere. The maid turns the lights on and they see the horror strung out before them. The man is in bed, naked with a female. Only problem is, the man is dead.

I loved reading this book. I’m a fan of thrillers but if you make it a legal thriller, it’s much better. I like how the author spun this story. And especially to bring a disease into it that hasn’t been around in a long time. The characters, mainly Ofer, are easy to relate to and to understand. The world that is created through this book is amazing and you can actually picture the events happening and seeing them in your minds eye while reading. A great story and one that will be staying in my collection for the foreseeable future!
