The life of Aaron Tucker -- freelance writer and stay-at-home dad -- is anything but boring. In fact, Aaron manages to find himself in way more danger than your typical mild-mannered Jewish guy. He lands in a murder investigation when a leading conservative politician is found dead in his DC hotel room, discovered by his mistress after her long post-coital shower. She (a former object of Aaron's affection) asks Aaron to find the killer. Aaron doesn't see himself as an investigating genius but he takes the assignment, which doesn't sit well with his family.

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

About the author (2003)

Contrary to popular belief Jeffrey Cohen was not born in the log cabin he helped his father build. Rather he was born in Irvington, New Jersey which has never seen a log cabin that wasn't at one time or another, turned into a tavern. After a childhood of normal duration, Cohen attended Rutgers College in New Brunswick, New Jersey, so as to maintain a record of never having left the Garden State for more than two weeks at a time, something which has never been equalled (or attempted) by anyone else. He studied English (when actually attending classes and not lounging at the student newspaper office), but decided to work as a journalist anyway. Finding work (after a fashion) at the Passaic Herald-News, he served as a municipal reporter for well over six months, establishing new lows in news gathering, but managing, in his final work for the newspaper, to quote Chico Marx. Following a hideous foray into public relations, Cohen eventually became a trade journalist, and covered the consumer electronics business until someone asked him to stop. Since 1985, he has been a freelance reporter and writer, writing for such publications as The New York Times, TV Guide, USA Weekend, Premiere, American Baby, and The Newark Star-Ledger, among many others. He is also the author of over 20 feature-length screenplays, some of which are actually good. His work has been published in The New York Times, TV Guide, and Entertainment Weekly, among many others, and his screenplays have been optioned
