Zohar Bar, an English literature teacher in a small college in California, is invited to lecture about crime novels to a group of Israelis who are spending Thanksgiving holiday in a cabin in the Sierra Mountains.

As he gets to know the guests he finds himself entangled in past and present mysteries, while the subject of his lectures blurs his judgement.

In her 6th novel Maya Arad has written a loving tribute to classical crime literature. In addition to her novels, Maya Arad has also written a novel in rhymes, three novellas and a theatre play.
