Description
Benny Cooperman is a detective with flair. This kinder, gentler detective-funny, smart and squeamish about violence-is the creation of master of the genre Howard Engel, whose enthusiastic fans include Ruth Rendell, Donald E. Westlake, Julian Symons, and Tony Hillerman. His readers stretch now to thirteen countries, from his native Canada to Japan, England, Germany, Italy, Spain, Denmark, and the US.
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.
