Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

When "vision of loveliness" Stella Seco, now known as Vanessa Moss, appears in charming Jewish gumshoe Benny Cooperman's Ontario office, it's not, unfortunately, a social call, even though they went to school together. Because a friend wearing Vanessa's clothing was murdered in Vanessa's house, the gorgeous head of entertainment at the National Television Corporation believes that someone's out to kill her and wants Benny to protect her, and that she's one of the prime suspects in the murder is the least of Bennys problems in Howard Engel's hard-to-resist The Cooperman Variations: A Benny Cooperman Mystery.

From Library Journal

Canadian-Jewish P.I. Benny Cooperman (There Was an Old Woman) goes to work for Vanessa Moss, a former acquaintance who now heads the entertainment division of a television network. After a friend is murdered in her house, Vanessa fears for her own life. Recommended.

this book was such a disappointment, I almost didn't read

Memory Book which is yes, set in the same hospital but as Howard says, from a different set of eyes.

This confused experiment with Wright is flawed. An interesting try and a dismal failure. To then go on and write Memory Book, well Oliver Sacks should know when an achievement is outstanding.

Life is short - skip this - read Memory Book which deserves every award possible. Go Benny, go!

Format: Paperback
The plot is described in the other reviews. The book is boring. The main character, computer resistant, is boring. The dreary descriptions of boring streets in Toronto made me put the book down and return it to the library. I love a good murder mystery and this is not one of them.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Well, it had to happen. After so many years of stability - the same shops, the same hangouts, the same neighbours - change had to come to Benny Cooperman. Many of the stores in Grantham are closing or changing owners. Benny is urged by Frank Bushmill, his neighbour and friend, to change too. He urges Benny to go on a holiday. Instead, Benny finds himself acting as a bodyguard to an old high school heartthrob, who is now a major executive with a television network. She returned home to find that a houseguest had been shot dead. Stella, or Vannessa as she is now known, is afraid that she was the intended target. Benny looks into the case and finds himself entangled in office politics, corrupt lawyers and musical stars. Meanwhile, Benny leads the cops to the real killer. As usual, an excellent read, and one of the better in the series, I think.
