She was cool, attractive—a real society lady—and she was in trouble. Benny Cooperman, a private eye with a hard head and a tender heart, was ready to help her in any way he could. But when her husband commits suicide the day Benny begins his investigation, the detective realizes he’s no longer dealing with a simple “family affair.”

Probing into the curious circumstances surrounding the death, Benny soon finds himself in the midst of a few more suicides—or murders.

Howard Engels, author of the Benny Cooperman Mysteries, was born in 1931. He is a talented best-selling author who has won numerous awards thanks to his literary works, such as the Arthur Ellis Award for Crime Fiction and the Crime Writers of Canada Derick Murdoch Award.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Bad It took me awhile to get into this book. It was hard to read mostly because of the jumping around. However once I got past that it was a fun read, hard to put down

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Classic Who Dun It This was a great quick read that kept me interested from beginning to end. For a novel written about a male PI in the eighties it was very unsexist. I enjoyed this book a lot and plan to read some of the rest of the series. It was a great Canadian mystery.

Editorial Reviews

“Benny is likable and resourceful, and Mr. Engel has conceived a classic (revenge and retribution) Ross Macdonald plot, and a good one.”
The New Yorker

“This is a smoothly written, well-plotted book, most superior to most of its genre. Let’s hope Benny comes back soon.”
The New York Times
