The Question of the Unfamiliar Husband, by E.J. Copperman/Jeff Cohen

“Captivating… Samuel gets arrested, goes on a date, and has a full-blown Asperger’s crisis when things go wrong. Readers will look forward to new challenges for Samuel in his next adventure.”
Publishers Weekly (Starred review)

The Question of the Missing Head, by E.J. Copperman/Jeff Cohen:

“(D)elightful and charming… What works best… is that the book doesn’t shrink from depicting Samuel’s idiosyncrasies–they are simply part of who he is.”  
Publishers Weekly

“A unique point of view on crime-solving, as well as offering a sensitive look at a too-often-misunderstood condition”

“The mystery is excellent, the minor characters clever and well-developed… Cohen/Copperman pulls you into his story and into the very different mind of his protagonist with an ease that is as cool and professional as the way James Lee Burke delivers the simmering anger and pain in alcoholic detective Dave Robicheaux or Tony Hillerman reveals the completely different worldview of a Navajo shaman.Yeah, I want to read more of Hoenig and Washburn.”
Tired of Talking About Myself (Terry Irving)

“I love Samuel… I feel the authors (have) created a wonderful protagonist and written a great mystery around him while at the same time creating awareness about Asperger’s. I truly can not wait to read the next story in this series. These authors have hit it out of the park on this one!”

Reviews of A Night at the Operation:

“If you love old comedy movies, wisecracks, or humorous mysteries, check out Jeffrey Cohen’s Double Feature mysteries. His latest book, A Night at the Operation, is his best yet… Elliot Freed’s whole life is a mess. And, it’s a fun mess for the reader. One scene in Elliot’s office is worth the entire cost of the book. By the time you finish A Night at the Operation, you might be just as tired as Elliot. But, it’s a glorious tired, due to chuckles and laughter. And, his characters, beginning with Elliot, are just wonderful. Cohen truly has written a tribute to all of those old zany comedies. If you need a pick-me-up, pick up A Night at the Operation.”
—Lesa Holstine, Lesa’s Book Critiques

“With his dry wit and unending knowledge of classical comedy movies, Cohen assures that he will keep up the high standard of mysteries that began with his Aaron Tucker mysteries and continues with the Double Feature Mysteries… Cohen provides readers with a twisty plot that completely surprises even the most jaded mystery fan and the ending is satisfying to both Elliot and the reader. Here’s to hoping that the series continues to entertain readers with humor, movie lore, and just plain good writing.”
—Cindy Chow, No Name Cafe

“Lightly balancing humor with solid character development, these books are a pure delight. They may send you scurrying to netflix or your DVD player to rewatch the old movies Cohen describes so lovingly in all the novels (he must be the world’s biggest Marx Brothers fan) but that’s all part of the fun. If you’re headed for the beach or a long plane ride, this is a writer who won’t be a disappointment.”
—Robin Agnew, Ann Arbor Journal

“A thoroughly fun-filled, light read with a character with lot of heart, this latest Elliot Freed mystery will have readers, new fans and old, calling for an encore.”
—Jennifer Monahan Winberry, The Mystery

“All of A Night at the Operation’s humor is brilliant and witty, and a touch of suspense and romance makes this book an absolute joy to read.”
—Sydney Thomas, The Genreview

“There is mystery and suspense in full measure, the author’s wonderful humor as well, with nary a page going by that doesn’t elicit a smile, grin, or hearty laugh [sometimes embarrassing when reading in public]. Thoroughly enjoyable, and highly recommended.”
—Gloria Feit, Crimespree Magazine

“Elliot is a wonderful cozy hero—and funny to boot. He’s a mensch everyone roots for. A Night at the Operation is a gentle and engaging mystery with great characters it’s easy for readers to care about.”
Cozy Library

“The best one yet. Like the first two books, it includes lots of great classic movie trivia and hysterical one-liners. But there’s also some very touching scenes, as well. Add to that a great mystery and you have a book that is well worth the read.”

Reviews of It Happened One Knife:

“Cohen’s affinity for characters, his affection for films and his innovative plotting elevate It Happened One Knife. Cohen’s wry sense of humor soars and puts him in the same league as other mystery authors who use comedy such as Elaine Viets, Jerilyn Farmer and Sarah Strohmeyer.”
—Oline Cogdill, syndicated mystery book reviewer

“Reading Cohen’s book is like hearing a great story in a bar—conversational, amusing, and you just want to buy someone a beer when you are done—and then ask for more. Cohen creates wonderful characters and Elliot Freed is a guy who’s right on the edge of nuttiness, but is so kind and big-hearted, that it’s easy to forgive his obsession with old comedies… Lots of laughs, some nice red herrings, and a perfect way to spend a summer afternoon.”
—Staci Alesi, Book Bitch

“Fans of Jeffrey Cohen’s Some Like It Hot-Buttered… will be thrilled with It Happened One Knife. Readers new to the series will find a motley group of endearing characters, a suspenseful read, and lots of humor. Unless you have no sense of humor at all, I don’t think you will be able to resist chuckling out loud as you read through the pages..”
—Cherie Jung,

“Elliot, the first-person narrator, is an absolute sweetheart. I really like the relationship between him and his ex-wife Sharon. In It Happened One Knife, their relationship appears to be moving from solid friendship to something a bit more complicated. Film buffs will appreciate all the movie references – but It Happened One Knife offers much more: smooth and witty writing, a pleasantly well-paced plot and a wonderful supporting cast for Elliot, who’s the undisputed star.”
—Diana, Cozy Library

I dare anyone to read this book and not run to netflix or the video store to look up a film mentioned. At the end of the book is a section on Funny Film Facts for Fanatics that is worth the price of the book. I’m looking forward to the next in the series.”
—Maggie Mary Mason, Deadly Pleasures

Cohen’s greatest strength, I think, is his ability to create characters of distinction who nearly jump off the page in their intensity… you’ll find your own favorites among the various suspects in this charming cozy mystery.”
Senior Reader

“For me, Cohen’s greatest strength is his characters, and I’ll continue to read his books for the characters even more than the humor… The teenagers in this series are great characters, particularly Sophie, who went from Goth teen to radical feminist. Cohen creates characters with heart. Jeffrey Cohen’s It Happened One Knife combines great characters, humor, and suspense, with a little slapstick, in the tradition of the best movie comedies. You can’t go wrong with Cohen’s “Double Feature Mysteries.”
—Lesa Holstine, Lesa’s Book Critiques

Reviews of Some Like It Hot-Buttered:

Some Like It Hot-Buttered was a delight to read and Elliot quickly joined the ranks of my favorite cozy heroes. The plot was fresh, the writing sparkled and the scene in which Elliot confronted one of the perpetrators inside the theater was worth the price of the book… Some Like It Hot-Buttered is just plain funny.”
—Diana Vickery, Mystery News

“A twisty mystery with lots of laughs and lots of heart. This is the first in the “Double Feature” mystery series, and hopefully it won’t be too long a wait for the next.”
—Stacy Alesi,

“Not only is the book funny, which you would expect from Jeff Cohen, but it is also well-plotted (also expected) and loaded with plenty of mis-direction. Plus you get to meet another terrific bunch of characters for whom the author obviously has great affection.”
—Yvette Banek, Mystery Ink Online

Some Like It Hot Buttered… should give him the attention he deserves. The humor and approach in Some Like It Hot Buttered has garnered Cohen comparisons to Janet Evanovich.”
—Oline Cogdill, Sun-Sentinel Off the Page

“Cohen fires up the gag reel for a new tongue-in-cheek mystery series sure to please fans of his Aaron Tucker mysteries (As Dog Is My Witness). Cohen develops his lively characters almost as effortlessly as he delivers the jokes—and the occasional guffaw—and manages to sneak in some suspenseful twists besides.”
Publishers Weekly

“Even if you’re not a movie buff, you’ll love this first book in a new series… The author doesn’t go for the zany approach here; Elliot, who narrates, has a very dry and sarcastic wit. The mystery is almost a locked room affair, and will keep the reader guessing until the end.”
—Deborah Hern, CA Reviews

“How can one author come up with someone as loveable as Aaron Tucker for one mystery series, and then another one just as sweet in Elliot Freed? I’m projecting great success for this series, since the first book manages to be fun and witty, and serious at the same time.
Cohen creates wonderful, likeable characters. Elliot’s ticket seller, Goth-wannabe, Sophie, is priceless. Along with the rest of the cast, they star in a jumbled mystery, with a convoluted perfect ending that only Elliot could resolve. It’s a witty, enjoyable mystery.
Jeffrey Cohen’s Some Like It Hot-Buttered is perfect for anyone who needs a ‘Comedy Tonight.'”
—Lesa Holstine, Lesa’s Book Critiques

Some Like It Hot-Buttered will keep you laughing till the end. Just when you think you have everything figured out, it turns upside down and everything you were sure of changes. I didn’t figure out who had killed the man in Row S Seat 18 till the end of the book. It is a book I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.”
—Deanna Spencer, ILoveAMystery Newsletter

Some Like It Hot-Buttered is a hilarious read, with quips and asides to movies and movie people. The plot is very believable, and provides a great insight into the comedy genre niche, which is sorely ignored all over the country. This reviewer thoroughly enjoyed Some Like It Hot-Buttered. The quick witted quips and great dialogue easily entertain, and the insights into human nature are a delight. This reviewer heartily recommends Some Like It Hot-Buttered, and is going to read the other novels by this accomplished author.”

“It’s difficult to get through even a page of one of Cohen’s books without having a chuckle. Elliot Freed is the classic underachieving nice guy, but with an edge of dark humor that is impossible to resist… If you enjoy humor in any form, you’ll get a kick out of Some Like It Hot-Buttered. If you like comedic mysteries, you’re in for a real treat. And, if you happen to like comedic mysteries and are a fan of classic comedy movies, you’ve hit the jackpot.”
—Angela McQuay, Curled Up With A Good Book

“Grab a bag of popcorn from the microwave, find a comfortable seat and prepare to be entertained. Before the book ends you’ll be wishing ther was a Comedy Tonight in your area. Can’t wait to see what feature Elliot will be showing next and what mystery will reel him in.”
Chattooga Press, Summerville, GA (Mason Canyon)

“The book is light, always amusing, sometimes downright funny, and quite compelling in a way that I rarely find cozies to be. Cohen may actually have a point to make about comedy and finding joy and humor in life that doesn’t hammer you over the head. He also, frankly, writes a pretty damned good mystery. The puzzle’s good and intricate enough to keep you guessing.”
—Mark Terry, This Writing Life

“This is a very funny mystery… The characters are well-defined, the dialog frequently laugh-out-loud funny, and the plot adequately complex without being overly complicated.”
Mysterious Reviews

“The plot is nicely twisting, with enough action to keep the reader entertained. The conclusion is unexpected but not absurd. Cohen is known for his humor and it is fully evident in this one also… Elliot is a sweet main character who will have the reader rooting for his professional and personal lives to succeed. This is the book for anyone who wants to relax, chuckle a bit and get involved in a good mystery.”
—Barb Radmore, Front Street Reviews

“Knock, knock.
“Who’s there?
“Cohen who?
“Cohen buy yourself this most entertaining book.”
—Larry Gelbart

“Many authors create good characters, but to create side-splittingly funny ones and make them believable is a tour de force. Jeffrey Cohen accomplishes that in his delightful Some Like It Hot-Buttered, which comes roaring in like a blast of fresh air.”
—Denise Dietz, author of the Ellie Bernstein mystery series

Reviews of the Aaron Tucker Mysteries:

“Wonderful… As Dog Is My Witness is the perfect cozy, and suburban dad Aaron Tucker is the ideal holiday dinner guest.”
—Betty Webb, Mystery Scene Magazine

As Dog Is My Witness is the most fun you can have with your clothes on. I’m off to beg, steal or borrow the previous two.”
—Sharon Wheeler, Reviewing the Evidence

“Quirky, adorable, and downright funny, Aaron is a totally endearing antisleuth.”
—Mary Frances Wilkens, Booklist

“Do yourselves a huge favor and get your hands on the Aaron Tucker books. And buy extras for your friends! Trust me, you will endear yourselves to them.”
—Yvette Banek, Mystery Ink

A Farewell to Legs is total entertainment. A fast-paced and forward-moving story with witty dialog and three-dimensional characters… Cohen’s characters and dialogue are so real, you’ll feel like you’re spending the day with old friends. I was still laughing, long after Tucker solved the crime.”
—Ingrid Taylor, Small Press Review

“The best thing about Cohen’s books is Aaron Tucker himself. A non-stop wisecracker who refuses to take anything seriously, Aaron is our best friend, our neighbor or even our husband… Cohen has definitely created a goldmine with his Aaron Tucker mysteries.”
—Angela McQuay, The Best Reviews

“Cohen’s dry sense of humor and warmth translates beautifully to the pages of his first novel. It doesn’t take the instincts of an investigative reporter to predict that all readers of For Whom the Minivan Rolls will become lifelong fans of the both Jeffrey Cohen and Aaron Tucker. I recommend this book to readers of all genres.”
—Pamela White,

“I’m not sure what is in the water in Jersey these days, but it’s working for me. Asperger Syndrome is handled with grace, dignity and apparent honesty. It’s a mystery indeed, but it’s the characters that bring this story to life. They are endearing people, the kind you want to spend time with. And I’m glad I did.”

“The mystery is top-notch, with some great twists and turns. Cohen’s voice is fresh, the dialogue snappy, and his hero, Aaron Tucker, is very entertaining—he’s someone you’ll enjoy spending time with.”
—Shannon Short, RT (Romantic Times) Bookclub

“In most novels, there is some one element that stands out—a brilliant plot, captivating characters, an intriguing setting or theme. In Minivan, it is the author’s voice. Self-deprecating, self-doubting Aaron Tucker is a lot of fun. Aaron is an entertaining character—wisecracking, irreverent, but also endearing.”
—Margaret Chittenden, author of the Charlie Plato series

“If Stephanie Plum and Myron Bolitar had a child, it would be Aaron Tucker.”

Reviews of Jeffrey Cohen’s Nonfiction Books:

“Finally, a book that addresses the PARENTS of children with AS. In The Asperger Parent, Jeffrey Cohen addresses parental challenges—difficult ones that parents frequently encounter (such as family and friends believing the problem is the parents’ ‘parenting style’). I highly recommend this WONDERFUL ‘support’ book for all parents of children with Asperger Syndrome.”
—Diane Adreon, Associate Director, Center for Autism and Related Disabilities and a parent of a child with AS

“(The Asperger Parent) is a must-read for any parent of a child with Asperger Syndrome who has ever felt alone in the parenting experience. Jeff Cohen offers reassurance and camaraderie as a parent who has ‘been there’ and knows what it’s like.”
—Lisa B. Elliott, author of Embarrassed Often… Ashamed Never

“Jeffrey Cohen has done it again! Another excellent book on the subject of autism spectrum disorders for parents and professionals. Guns A’ Blazing effectively tackles the sensitive subject of parent-school relationships. While acknowledging that parents of children on the autism spectrum are the experts about their child and the disorder, he also recognizes that most school districts have the child’s best interests at heart. Parent-school partnerships can and do work, and the key to success is to enter into the relationship with an open mind rather than ‘guns a’ blazing.’ This book is a must-read for all those who live with or work alongside children on the autism spectrum!”
—Lori Shery, president, co-founder, ASPEN, Inc.

“What a wonderful book! This book provides much insight into the ‘schooling’ process for a child with Asperger Syndrome (AS). It highlights the challenges parents and professionals face when trying to provide effective educational experiences for a student with AS, sharing what Cohen and his wife have learned about working efficiently with school personnel. While it is an excellent book for parents of children with AS, we plan to use it as a required readings book in our graduate course, Methods for Students with Asperger’s Syndrome.”
—Marj Bock, Associate Professor and Director, Global Rural Autism Asperger Information Network
