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, Cooperman is snugly tucked in his bed in quiet Grantham, a Canadian town near Niagara Falls, when three unsavory thugs drag him out 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 Cooperman to investigate. Author 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, fashion and auto repair, Cooperman finds himself entangled in more corruption, vengeance, and intrigue than one could ever imagine existing in a sleepy little village. Getting Away with Murder is the ninth book in the Benny Cooperman Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
