A Farewell to Legs by Jeffrey Cohen

Review by Andrea Maloney

Aaron Tucker is back and better than ever. A former high school classmate asks Tucker to look into the murder of her husband to try to find his killer especially since she is the police department's number one suspect. And since a magazine is offering him ten thousand dollars to do that he just can't refuse.  But one mystery isn't enough and he's also been asked by his children's principal to find out who has been tossing stink bombs into the school before she ends up with her job in jeopardy. And his wife is being stalked by a former client. He has to investigate all this while writing his screenplay and being a stay-at-home dad for his two children, Leah and Ethan who has Asperger's Syndrome. And if that wasn't enough, into this mix comes a gecko and a dog who enjoys relieving himself in Tucker's office. Tucker soon finds he has his hands full with family, friends and with a long list of suspects and red herrings abounding.

Jeffrey Cohen has written another wonderfully funny, heart warming mystery story that you will want to read in one sitting. Just be sure not to read it in public unless you want people staring at you when you start laughing hysterically over Aaron's wit, humor and antics. There is a scene with Aaron and a stink bomb that is absolutely hysterical and it brought me to tears. The plot moves along at a fast pace, the characters are well developed and fun, and the interaction between Aaron and his family is delightfully heart warming. A terrific second book in a wonderful mystery series.
