Description

Struggling with the aftermath of a serious concussion as well as what he describes as a "leaky memory," Benny Cooperman is back after eight years. He's hired on a shoestring budget to find background information on a murder victim, Leonard Holbrook, a petty crook and blackmailer, who certainly got what was coming to him - but which of the many possible suspects acted on their very good reasons?

 

Over the river happens to be across the border, where the police of Grantham have no jurisdiction, but where Benny can interview a cast of characters who wouldn't be out of place in the mysteries of Chandler and Hammett.

 

In prose laced with tributes to poetry, theatre, novels, and film, Howard Engel delights and entertains the reader in this fifteenth Benny Cooperman mystery.
