The fifth entry in this acclaimed series finds Verlaque and Bonnet searching for a murderer—in a crime tied to Provence's greatest artistThe next book in the Verlaque & Bonnet Provençal Mystery series, The Curse of La Fontaine, will be available from Penguin in April 2017!A friend in his cigar club asks Antoine Verlaque to visit René Rouquet, a retired postal worker who has found a rolled-up canvas in his apartment. As the apartment once belonged to Paul Cézanne, Rouquet is convinced he's discovered a treasure. But when Antoine arrives at the apartment, he finds René dead, the canvas missing, and a mysterious art history professor standing over the body.When the painting is finally recovered, the mystery only deepens. The brushwork and color all point to Cézanne. But who is the smiling woman in the painting? She is definitely not the dour Madame Cézanne. Who killed René? Who stole the painting? And what will they do to get it back?Like Donna Leon and Andrea Camilleri, M. L. Longworth's enchanting mysteries blend clever whodunits with gustatory delights and the timeless romance of Provence. The Mystery of the Lost Cézanne adds a new twist by immersing Antoine and Marine in a clever double narrative that costars Provence's greatest artist."Art theft is a hot topic on the mystery scene, and no one's heist is livelier than Longworth's." —Kirkus ReviewsFrom the Trade Paperback edition.
