The Cooperman Variations(2001)
(The tenth book in the Benny Cooperman series)
A novel by Howard Engel
"Benny Cooperman is a detective with flair, known and loved as the witty, egg salad-loving, Jewish gentleman sleuth he is the world over. This kinder, gentler detective - funny, smart and squeamish about violence - is the creation of master of the genre Howard Engel, and readers stretch now to thirteen countries, from Canada to Japan, England, Germany, Italy, Spain, Denmark, and the U.S." "A murder and a beautiful woman are the key elements that get Benny embroiled in the scandalous world of television broadcasting this time around." It all starts when Benny, mulling over the lack of stimulating work and the absence of his girlfriend, is visited by a woman from his past. She is Vanessa Moss, a former high school beauty who has grown up to become Head of Entertainment at a television network, and she asks Benny to protect her. A friend was murdered while at her house and Vanessa fear she was the target. So, Benny poses as Vanessa's executive assistant amidst a tangle of competing executives, back-biting lawyers, arrogant producers, and hopeful hangers-on, trying to protect his client, give the local cops a helping hand, and avoid making enemies of his colleaques. He quickly discovers that taking care of Vanessa is a seductive but risky business.
