The Mystery of the Lost Cezanne
by M. L. Longworth




Overview -
A beguiling mystery that finds Verlaque and Bonnet searching for a murderer--in a crime tied to Provence's greatest artist

Proven al Mystery Series #5

A friend in his cigar club asks Antoine Verlaque to visit Ren Rouquet, a retired postal worker who has found a rolled-up canvas in his apartment. As the apartment once belonged to Paul 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?

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 C zanne 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 Reviews
