From an Arthur Ellis Award–winning author, a mystery starring the Canadian investigator who “just plain charms the socks off anyone he meets” (Booklist).
When truck driver Jack Dowden is killed in an accident while hauling toxic waste, his widow, Irma, suspects something fishy. Dowden wasn’t the type to be careless, and Irma has reason to believe that someone may have wanted him dead. Naturally, Benny Cooperman is the man she calls to take the case. It’s up to the affable detective to solve the mystery of Dowden’s death—before the situation proves hazardous to his health . . .
“Benny, a private detective in fictional Grantham, Ontario, is a marvelous creation—a hardworking fellow whose innate bad luck just keeps leading him into the wrong cases. (Think Jim Rockford minus the proclivity for getting into fistfights.)” —Booklist
“A warmly likable hero with an ironic sense of humor.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Benny Cooperman is one of the most enjoyable private eyes in crime fiction.” —The Toronto Star
Dead and Buried is the seventh book in the Benny Cooperman Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
