Seemingly random victims are being brutally murdered, their bodies mutilated with strange markings. Yet David Bar-Lev, chief of the Pattern Crimes unit of Jerusalem's police, searches for a pattern to these acts. To his amazement, he discovers that the murders are merely part of an even larger and infinitely more shocking pattern.

Review: Pattern Crimes

User Review  - Tomi - Goodreads

Interesting murder mystery...I didn't think all the different facets of the plot would tie together but they did and quite well. Enjoyed a book set in Israel; I like things set in places that I have been so that I can imagine the events more clearly. Read full review
