After attending her father's funeral, former Mossad agent Rachel Goldschmitt empties her bank account and disappears. But when she makes a cryptic phone call to her former handler, Ehud, the Mossad sends him to track her down. Finding no leads, he must retrace her career as a spy to figure out why she abandoned Mossad before she can do any damage to Israel. But he soon discovers that after living undercover for so long, an agent's assumed identity and her real one can blur, catching loyalty, love, and truth between them. In the midst of a high-risk, high-stakes investigation, Ehud begins to question whether he ever knew his agent at all.
In The English Teacher, Yiftach R. Atir drew on his own experience in intelligence to weave a psychologically nuanced thriller that explores the pressures of living under an assumed identity for months at a time.

The Good and the Bad
The Washington Post named this mystery novel one of the top 10 of 2016. I agree that the story was well written and interesting; however, while the narrator had a good voice and did an adequate job, her lack of energy throughout much of the story did a disservice to the author and the listeners. Overall, still a good audiobook.

Powerful suspense story
This is not a feel good happy ending spy story. It's a powerful and seemingly truthful account of an agent caught between a real life which holds nothing for her and a False life that she creates containing all that she loves. Well written and well read.
