The Suicide Murders

(The first book in the Benny Cooperman series)
A novel by

Myrna Yates shows up at Benny Cooperman's office asking him to check up on her husband, the contractor Chester Yates, who she believes is having an affair. It seems like an open-and-shut case, until Cooperman finds out that the straying spouse has committed suicide. Something doesn't add up; Mr. Yates bought a 10-speed bicycle just 2 hours before he killed himself. Could this "suicide" in fact be murder? The Jewish detective's got a whole new case on his hands, one in which the suspicions of a wife turn out to be much darker than anyone could have imagined.

Cooperman's a detective with flair. Kinder and gentler than your average PI - and ironically squeamish about violence - he's the creation of author Howard Engel, a master of the crime genre whose enthusiastic fans have included Ruth Rendell, Donald E. Westlake, Julian Symons, and Tony Hillerman. Engel's readership spans 13 countries, including Japan, England, Germany, Italy, Spain, Denmark, the United States, and his native Canada.
