The fifth entry in this acclaimed series finds Verlaque and Bonnet investigating a murder and the provenance of a mysterious painting
Like Donna Leon and Andrea Camilleri, M. L. Longworth's enchanting mystery series blends clever whodunits with gustatory delights and the timeless appeal of Provence. The Mystery of the Lost C?zanne adds a new twist by immersing Antoine and Marine in a clever double narrative that costars Provence's greatest artist.
A friend in his cigar club asks Antoine to visit Ren? Rouquet, a retired postal worker who has found a rolled-up canvas in his apartment. As the apartment once belonged to C?zanne, Rouquet is convinced he's discovered a treasure. But when Antoine arrives at the apartment, he finds Ren? 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 C?zanne. But who is the smiling woman in the painting? She is definitely not the dour Madame C?zanne. Who killed Ren?? Who stole the painting? And what will they do to get it back?
