The Mystery Of The Lost Cezanne

A Verlaque & Bonnet Mystery

Antoine and Marine are investigating both a murder and the provenance of a mysterious painting. Could it be a genuine Cezanne? Pierre, a friend from Antoine Verlaque's cigar club asks him to visit a cranky old man named Rene, who thinks he may have discovered the Cezanne. But when they arrive, Rene is dead, the painting is gone and a beautiful American art history professor is in Rene's flat. Did she kill Rene? And where is the painting? The 5th book in the popular Verlaque and Bonnet mystery series (Penguin).
Rezension
Praise for M. L. Longworth's Provençal Mystery series
"The Verlaque and Bonnet mysteries . . . plunge you into a languid world of epicurean pleasures and good living." -Eleanor Beardsley, NPR
"Beguiling . . . Longworth evokes the pleasures of France in delicious detail-great wine, delicious meals, and fine company." -Publishers Weekly
Praise for The Mystery of the Lost Cezanne
"Art theft is a hot topic on the mystery scene, and no one's heist is livelier than Longworth's." -Kirkus Reviews
"A sure thing for fans of art-themed mysteries." -Booklist
"Enchanting . . . the charming local citizens of Aix-en-Provence provide the true delights in this colorful story." -Library Journal
Praise for Murder on the Île Sordou
"Charming." -Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
"Thoroughly delightful . . . Longworth deftly handles what is in effect a locked-room mystery, but the book's real strength lies in the backstories she creates for each of the distinctive characters. The puzzle's answer, buried in the past, is well prepared by what has come before." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Longworth once again immerses readers in French culture with this whodunit, which will delight Francophiles and fans of Donna Leon and Andrea Camilleri. The setting will also appeal to readers who enjoy trapped-on-the-island mysteries in the tradition of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None." -Library Journal
"Longworth's novels, set in the south of France, are mysteries for foodies, with the plot providing a table upon which the enchanting meals and accompanying wines are served." -Booklist
"[A] charming read with a well-crafted mystery and characters as rich and full-bodied as a Bordeaux." -Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"A splendid read." -Mystery Scene
"The best thing about each novel in this series is that they are as much about lifestyle in the south of France as they are about a legal tangle, a disappearance or a murder. . . . By this third [novel] in the series, Longworth, shows the reader why those who love Donna Leon's Brunetti and Martin Walker's Bruno take up her novels with enthusiasm." -Kings River Life Magazine
"Longworth's maritime version of a country-house cozy offers genuine pleasures." -Kirkus Reviews
