Work-at-home dad, devoted husband, hustling freelance writer, aspiring screenwriter all ways to describe the unwilling sleuth Aaron Tucker, whom one reviewer dubbed a combination of "Bart Simpson and James Bond." In "A Farewell to Legs," the second installment of the Aaron Tucker Mystery series, Aaron is back on the trail again, this time trying to ferret out the murderer of a former high school classmate, a D.C. lobbyist whose enemies finally stick it to him, literally, with a six-inch steak knife. The deceased leaves behind a bombshell of a widow, a secret bankroll of $13 million, and a cloud of political controversy, all of which lead Aaron to a barrel of red herrings. But in the life of Aaron Tucker, one mystery is never enough (though he'd be quick to tell you otherwise). He's also been delegated the odious task of tracking down Buzbee School's secret stink-bomber. And, much to Aaron's consternation, his wife, the beautiful attorney Abby Stein, is being stalked by a former client. All in a day's work for the diminutive freelance writer, who, as procrastinator extraordinaire, would rather be doing anything but investigating."

User Review  - bookswoman - LibraryThing

The second in the Aaron Tucker mysteries is just as funny and just as fun as the first. "Legs" is a nickname and you'll get the reason for his farewell - eventually. Cohen is good at making you guess, and at misdirecting you so you are surprised at the ending. Read full review

Review: A Farewell to Legs (Aaron Tucker Mysteries #2)

User Review  - Martin - Goodreads

Started reading this on a whim and was hooked and stayed with it. It is highly readable and a page turner. I would recommend this book - not the book of the year, but great entertainment value and Jeffrey Cohen is funny, witty and in touch with modern trends. Read full review
