An explosive device is found in a suitcase near a daycare centre in Holon, a quiet suburb of Tel Aviv. A few hours later, a threat is received: the suitcase was only the beginning. And it was.
Inspector Avraham Avraham, back in Israel after a long vacation he had taken to recover from his last case (in the acclaimed The Missing File), is assigned to the investigation. Anxious about the nursery's children, he acts fast. He has a number of suspects, though, and one of them, a father of two, has seemingly gone on the run. Is he related to the suitcase and the threat? Is he trying to escape Avraham's investigation, or did he commit another crime, possibly more terrible, one that no one knows has been committed?
Told from alternating perspectives, A Possibility of Violence is the story of Avraham's attempt to redeem himself from the trauma and failure of his first investigation, through a case even more deceiving and hideous. And it is a story of a father on the run, desperately trying to save his children from something he dares not reveal.
