This tale of skullduggery in the art world is “another winner” from the Arthur Ellis Award–winning author (Publishers Weekly).
To say that Canadian private investigator Benny Cooperman is a novice in the art world would be an understatement. Nevertheless, he’s hired by Pambos Kiriakis, the manager of Grantham, Ontario’s poshest hotel, to track down some valuable works that went missing while on loan from a local gallery.
But while Cooperman is hobnobbing with the art-collecting glitterati, things take a deadly turn. His client is stabbed, and a peculiar clue is left in a coffee cup at the crime scene. But who would want to kill Kiriakis? And could a painting really drive someone to murder?
“The Cooperman novels are heavy on full-bodied characters, sharp dialogue, and rich humor. Benny just plain charms the socks off anyone he meets.” —Booklist
“Benny Cooperman is . . . a lot of fun to hang out with.” —Donald E. Westlake
A Victim Must be Found is the sixth book in the Benny Cooperman Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
``Acclaimed Canadian mystery writer Engel presents another winner about disarmingly honest Benny Cooperman, private investigator of Grantham, Ontario,'' observed PW . Here Cooperman investigates a number of prominent citizens who borrowed paintings from the late art dealer Arthur Tallon.
