In his latest case, Benny Cooperman is sure that toxic waste isn't something you should spend too much time thinking about -it just isn't good for your mental health. But when Jack Dowden's widow appeals to Benny to investigate the death of her truck-driving husband, our favorite gumshoe finds himself up to his egg salad-stained lapels in the deadly filth of Kinross Disposals. As he unearths clues-and PCBs-the body count rises, and Benny Cooperman does everything he can not to end up dead and buried. Engel has once again created a colorful cast of good guys and rogues, another satisfying chapter in the sleuthing life of Benny Cooperman-a mystery guaranteed to challenge novice and seasoned fan alike.
