Disappearance: A Mystery and Espionage Thriller is a great book with interesting characters.
The story is mainly set in Israel and the United States. The depiction of life on a kibbutz is fascinating. The tenaciousness of the "heroes" in the book is admirable and believable.
The narrator is very good. He helps set the tone and pace of the tale.

I love the multiple dimensions that books offer as a place to dwell for moments or the end of time.
This story well written story was a little long but it was an intricate story. I enjoyed being thrust into a different culture with this story... Believable, intense, sad, and tender. I did get lost a few times but found it easy to get back into it after a break.
The narration was performed well with a soothing, steady voice with great timing. I will look for more from this narrator, perhaps in a different genre.
