"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."

About the Author:

Jeffrey Cohen has been a full-time freelance writer/reporter for 16 years, and has written more than 20 feature-length screenplays. His work has been published in The New York Times, TV Guide, and Entertainment Weekly, among many others, and his screenplays have been optioned by Jim Henson Productions, CBS, and Gross-Weston Productions, among others.

A graduate of Rutgers, he lives in New Jersey, with his wife and two children.

A Farewell to Legs is his second novel, a follow-up to Aaron Tucker’s debut in For Whom The Minivan Rolls.

From Booklist:

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. In For Whom the Minivan Tolls (2002), he found missing persons, and now he lands in a murder investigation. When a leading conservative politician is found dead in his D.C. hotel room, discovered by his mistress after her long postcoital shower, the guy's ex (a former object of Aaron's affection) asks Aaron to find the killer. Aaron doesn't see himself as any investigating genius--he has his sights set on being a screenwriter--but he's also a pushover, so he takes the assignment, which doesn't sit well with his wife, nor does it make handling his demanding daughter and special-needs son any easier. Quirky, adorable, and downright funny, Aaron is a totally endearing antisleuth. Let's hope he keeps his screenwriting career on hold through a few more adventures. Mary Frances Wilkens
