"Chrysanthemums," by Asaf Schurr, in West Jerusalem Noir, edited by Maayan Eitan, Akashic Press, 2023.
The publisher sent me a free copy of this book.
One night Nahum is awakened by a banging at the door. His grown daughter Michal has arrived.
"I killed him. I killed him. I think I killed him."
It was a traffic accident, a hit-and-run. Nahum is determined to protect her from the police, whatever it takes. He has the obvious paternal reasons, but there is also an incident in his past that adds to his sense of responsibility.
A nice, suspenseful story.
