Product Description

When a mob boss makes an offer, how can Benny Cooperman refuse The intrepid gumshoe returns for one of his most dangerous cases . . . what, you haven t read a Benny Cooperman novel yet

Benny Cooperman is a detective with flair a witty, egg salad-loving, gentlemanly Jewish detective with a pronounced squeamishness when things get violent. In his most baffling case yet, Benny Cooperman is snug in his bed in quiet Grantham, a town near Niagara Falls, when three unsavory thugs drag him out of bed and present him like a trophy to notorious crime boss, Abram Wise. Someone has made two attempts on the gangster s life and with no one else to turn to he wants Benny to investigate.

Howard Engel has once again assembled a colorful cast that includes Wise s two disgruntled ex-wives, an alluring supermodel, an irate foreign car dealer, and an eccentric retired librarian. In an intricately woven plot that mixes past and present, murder and Middle Eastern food, and fashion and auto repair, Cooperman finds himself entangled in more corruption, vengeance and intrigue than one ever imagined could exist in a sleepy little town.

Winner of the Arthur Ellis Award for crime fiction, Howard Engel, author of the acclaimed Benny Cooperman mystery series, is a founding member of the Crime Writer s Association of Canada, where his private eye 0has been described as a cherished national institution. His most recent book, Murder in Montparnasse, is a departure from the Cooperman series and is also available from Overlook.
